Format: Paperback
This is definitely a book for those on a course rather than wanting a just good read or overview of current thought on economic strategy and modelling.
As someone on a distance learning MBA, the use of applied case studies make it very relevant. All the exercises make it easy for tutors to recommend
The CD ROM is worth the cost of the book alone
