2.0 out of 5 stars Not really a Kindle Book 4 Jun 2013
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think of myself as an technology savvy individual, so when my computer science class had this book I bought it in the Kindle edition. It was still $165.00 which seemed very steep, but I enjoy reading on my iPad via the Kindle app, so thought his would be a good fit.

However it really should be described as a PDF of the textbook, not a Kindle ebook. The text size cannot be changed, since it is essentially just a picture of the page. That means that on a retina iPad it is still difficult to read the page without zooming in, and eye strain and frustration sets in quickly.

The only positive has been that you can search the text, however even that works fairly slowly due to the size of the file.

I would recommend you buy the paper version of the book until this publisher figures out how to implement an e-textbook correctly. Or make it a heck of a lot cheaper in the Kindle version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid this book if possible 17 Dec 2013
By Dasbooby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has a lot of issues and wasn't really helpful to me throughout the duration of my class. The authors style of writing isn't interesting to read so it's difficult to retain the information. I'd find myself losing interest while mid-paragraph, start thinking about something else, only to realize I'd finished 2-3 paragraphs and had no memory of anything I'd read. The authors are also overly wordy and use a lot of jargon words. They could easily cut out about half the content from each chapter and still retain the important information. As proof of this, I'll reference chapter 4. I was reading through it and about half way through I read something that I was certain I'd read before. I flipped back to the introduction for chapter 4 on Page 121 and sure enough, they literally copy and pasted a paragraph from the introduction and put it in, nearly word for word, on page 137 of the same chapter. They even placed it in the middle of a paragraph and changed a word here or there to make it look like it is different information. The 2nd paragraph on the intro page starts out "So how common is online behavioral tracking?" whereas the one on page 137 starts out "So how common is web tracking?" Everything after that is copy and pasted. I have no idea how an editor didn't catch this. My guess is that changing the placement of the paragraph was one of the "changes" they made to get people to buy a new edition of the book, but they forgot to delete the spot where it was originally at. This excessive wordiness leads into problem number 2.

It takes way to long to get through each chapter. The sweet spot for textbooks is about 25-45 minutes a chapter. This makes it easier for the reader to stay engaged, retain the information they've read, and prevents some of the "how much longer is this chapter going to be" issues. Good luck getting through any of the chapters in this book in under an hour. There are 14 chapters and 540+ pages contained within those 14 chapters. This means that each chapter is roughly 30 pages (not counting the post chapter material). I'd say the average reader will spend anywhere between an hour and fifteen minutes to an hour and a half getting through a chapter. You could probably drop that time a little by skipping the interactive session readings, but they are one of the few interesting spots in the book.

The first few chapters are also very disjointed, bouncing from random topic to random topic. There is some good information in this book, but unless you absolutely have to have it for a class, don't get it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version is absolutey horrible -- stay away from it. 5 Feb 2014
By Eric M Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The contents of this textbook are fine, however, the Kindle edition is a nightmare. It is only compatible with limited devices (why in the world would it not be compatible with the Amazon Cloud Reader?), and even then it is extremely locked down. For instance, I loaded it on my computer at work using Kindle for PC; I then tried to load it on my home computer, only to find that it would not allow me to do so...loading it at work was enough to meet the license limit. I then had the option of either de-registering my work computer and deleting the book from there, or...purchasing another copy for $125.00.

I am a huge fan of textbooks in Kindle format, but this book is the exception...stay away from it, it is not worth the headache. This is a prime example of where I would fully support stripping of DRM (these people are fortunate I am not technical enough to figure this out!) -- I paid a more than fair price for this text, and now am highly inconvenienced as to how I can actually use it for my class.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent rental service 25 Mar 2014

Book arrived quickly and in excellent condition. Content seems choppy and difficult to follow. I would not recommend this book unless it is a course requirement.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great MIS Textbook 24 Feb 2014
By Leonard B. Stilwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Kenneth Laudon's Managememt Information Systems is a well-organized, logically laid out and informative textbook on the current trends in MIS business solutions. Laudon often quickly touches on key concepts, systems, software, etc. and boils down the info in language that's easy to understand.

Chapters cases are used to illustrate important uses of MIS by firms to help the student apply their knowledge to real world cases.

If you like to mark your book or take notes, this edition provides plenty of room in the margins to do so.
