MSCD5: The Five Editions – Adams on Contract Drafting

The photo above shows the spines of all five editions of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting. It doesn’t bring to mind anything particularly profound—just two thoughts.

First, when considered from day to day, what I do has been more fun than it has any right to be. But if you consider the totality of it, you realize that it has also been a real slog.

And second, even though in this photo the difference between each edition and the next seems to diminish progressively, I suggest that the quantum of change represented by each new edition has been roughly the same. It’s just that as the book has grown, that quantum of change has become proportionately a smaller part of the whole. But even considered proportionately, the change remains meaningful—the fifth edition is 10% bigger than the fourth edition.

(You can buy the fifth edition here. And go here for all my self-indulgent posts about the fifth edition.)
