This prevents every dispute going onto formal court proceedings.

To assist in learning the topic each chapter begins with a "roadmap" or outline of what will be covered and ends with a checklist of the key topics covered in the chapter. A brief master checklist at the end of the volume recaps the topic and is a handy reference or study guide. Numerous flow charts and diagrams sprinkled throughout the text are a bonus for visual learners.
