|For those who draft, review, negotiate, or interpret contracts, this second edition of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting is a resource without equal. This new edition has been entirely redesigned and is much expanded--over 200 pages longer than the first edition. It covers in greater depth many topics addressed in the first edition, and it discusses many additional topics for the first time. Its analysis of the issues is comprehensive, rigorous, and innovative. |
Here are some of the topics covered:
* information to include--and not include--in the front and back of the contract
* gaining greater control of your drafting through an understanding of categories of contract language
* using defined terms efficiently
* the implications of best efforts, material adverse change, and dozens of other contract words and phrases
* the many sources of ambiguity and the clearer alternatives you should use
* rules of general writing that apply to contract drafting
* optimal layout and typography
For the first time, A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting includes an appendix with three versions of a contract--the "before" version, the "before" version extensively annotated to show its shortcomings, and the "after" version, redrafted in accordance with the recommendations contained in the manual.
The focus of Adams's book remains not what provisions to include in a given contract, but how to express those provisions in prose that is free of the problems that often afflict contract language. With an unmatched level of practical detail, Adams highlights common sources of inefficiency, confusion, and dispute and recommends clearer and more efficient alternatives. With its numbered paragraphs, this manual is designed for easy reference, and it illustrates its analysis with copious examples.
