About the authors
James Brook
New York Law School

After graduating cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1972, Professor Brook joined a general corporate practice firm in Boston. In 1975, he was awarded a Bigelow Teaching Fellowship at the University of Chicago Law School and found teaching law students the art of research and legal writing extremely rewarding. Offered a position at New York Law School in 1976, he came to New York, a city in which he had always wanted to live, to use his legal training in a way he had always found most personally rewarding mdash; teaching. Professor Brookrsquo;s field is commercial law, and it is his first-year classes that he consistently finds most interesting and challenging. About 10 years ago, Professor Brook began writing the first of his three very successful ldquo;Examples and Explanationsrdquo; books for Aspen Publishers on three major areas of law: secured transactions, payment systems, and sales and leases. His first book, A Lawyerrsquo;s Guide to Probability and Statistics (Carswell, 1990), utilized his math backgroundmdash;he was a Phi Beta Kappa math major at Harvardmdash;to shed some light on a field where a great deal of fact-finding and proof in litigation is based on probability and statistics. A 1981ndash;82 Finkelstein Fellow at Columbia Law School, where he pursued studies in the area of probability and statistics and the law, he received his LL.M. from Columbia in 1983. Professor Brookrsquo;s ldquo;Examples and Explanationsrdquo; books, which he updates approximately every three years, rely on his colloquial and humorous style of writing and teaching, a style that he maintains makes commercial law far more accessible and less intimidating than it might otherwise be. His most recent addition to the collection is Secured Transactions: Examples Explanations, Fourth Edition (Aspen Publishers, 2008).
