Titles in Barron's Business Review series are widely used as classroom supplements to college textbooks and often serve as a main textbook in business brush-up programs. Business Law focuses on the importance of legal theory in the everyday business world, explaining such subjects as tort responsibility, government regulations, contracts, environmental law, product liability, consumer protection, and international law, among many other topics. Also discussed in detail are the legal aspects of partnerships, franchises, and corporations, as well as special topics that include business crimes, property as a legal concept, intellectual property, and similar pertinent topics. A study aid labeled Key Terms appears at the beginning of each chapter, and You Should Remember summaries are strategically interspersed throughout the text.
"I have often said that money problems are not solved with money. Ann-Margaret understands it is not what you make but what you keep that matters. You will read this once and refer to it for years to come." -Dr. Phil, from his foreword It is no secret that we are living in an increasingly litigious society. What may come as a surprise, though, is that we are far more likely to be involved in a costly legal dispute with a former loved one than we are with a stranger. In Love and Money, Ann-Margaret Carrozza will help you to easily understand and implement essential legal strategies to prevent you from doing legal battle with someone you once shared Thanksgiving dinner (or a pillow) with. Through an engaging narrative, including amusing cautionary tales, readers will learn how to utilize contracts to identify and avoid costly relationship landmines, reduce pet peeves, and create a joint mission statement, all the while ensuring that one's wealth and values are transmitted to future generations. Love and Money demystifies many legal structures, including: Prenuptial agreements Postnuptial agreements Cohabitation agreements Love contracts Wills Trusts Powers of attorney Healthcare advance directives After learning how to erect legal barriers against external wealth destroyers and evildoers, the focus of the book moves to internal wealth destroyers. Readers will learn how to identify and combat internal wealth repellants such as low self-esteem, fear, and stress. Becoming and remaining wealthy requires more than just money. This book provides a unique education about the interrelated nature of the internal and external laws of wealth and how to put them both to work for stronger relationships with one's finances and loved ones.

Have you ever been in a position where a vulnerable, defenceless or exposed loved one needs protection from undue influence and pressure from others to change their last Will and Testament? Many families may find themselves in this situation and are unsure of what to do or who to approach for help. English law states that when writing a will, an individual must comprehend the nature of the act that they are engaging and `no insane delusion shall influence his will'. In his new book, Dr Hugh F O'Donnell brings us a comprehensive guide to establishing `testamentary capacity', explaining the importance of making a will, and how best to go about this. This comprehensive and helpful book provides guidance for a wide audience, including legal professionals and family doctors, alongside the general reader. Hugh looks at the future and the protection of the vulnerable, offering a useful pre-probate protocol for doctors and offers welcome and useful advice to all involved in this complex and sensitive area.
For most people, reading a contract conjures up feelings of
dread rather than elation--perhaps even more so for artists. And
who can blame them? Nevertheless, if you are going to succeed as a
creative person in a business world, you must come to terms with
the need to balance your aesthetic sense with business savvy.
