Nolo’s New Contracts Book: Don’t Make a Deal Without It

We’re happy to announce the latest addition to the Nolo bookstore: Contracts: The Essential Business Desk Reference, by Nolo author and attorney Rich Stim (of Dear Rich fame) is the first desk reference of contract terms written specifically with non-lawyers in mind.

While contracts have become an integral part of everyday life, very few of us are able to decipher the legalese in these documents. So it’s no surprise that most people hesitate before signing on the dotted line and committing to a contract’s terms. Contracts will arm you with all the information you need to sign any agreement with confidence. This all-in-one guide can also save you money by coaching you on which clauses are important, so you can avoid a pricey professional review by a lawyer. Get your copy of Contracts now!
