I appreciate this book for it's clarity. The book uses many "educations feats" such as examples, key termlists and short summaries per chapter. The examples used are quite up-to-date and help to clarify the concepts very well. However the book could have been somewhat more concise.

Management Information Systems is a very easy to read book, full of examples and case studies and is an excellent company not only for management students but to computer science students as well.
End-of-chapter exercices and reviews give a more resumed overview of all chapters so it's almost impossible not to understand everything.
It's definitely an excellent book.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a preparation for my MSc in Information Systems and I am a little disappointed. It is a good book for a beginner but I wouldn't recommend it for experienced professionals. As it covers a broad range of topics in IS, it could be useful as a general reference book, but it doesn't go much in depth of the matter.
