By UKAcademic on 10 Aug. 2012
Format: Paperback
An excellent book on the subject from a procurement point of view. The procurement process is dealt with very well. The supply chain side concentrates more on dealing with suppliers, as opposed to say distribution or logistics theory. But overall a very good book on the subject whith helpful case studies. Recommdended for people in purchasing & procurement.

College resource 10 Feb. 2011
By Professor615 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This text is a scholarly presentation of purchasing and supply chain management for the 21st century. "Arjan van Weele holds the (parttime) NEVI-Chair of Purchasing and Supply Management, at Eindhoven University of Technology, Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences (IE&IS), The Netherlands." The material is thorough, excellent, and slow going for a sophomore course in logistics.

Comprehensive Book 8 Oct. 2009
By Charles Benfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very well written book covering a wide variety of topics yet with enough detail to be very helpful. I highly recommend it for anyone needing information about the basics of purchasing. It has been very helpful to me. I was looking for a good single source on the topic of purchasing and this is certainly it.

School use. It served its purpose. Received on time and it was in perfect shape as advertised. It was brand new.
Contents are there - but order is not 27 Jan. 2013
By P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book contains an overview of purchasing which is rather good in my (untrained) opinion. However, the structure in the book is absolutely awful. It would be so much better if explanations were not banned to definitions in the sideline and lists of characteristics where actually put in one place. You can now find some similar characteristics here, and some there. This makes it very hard for me to clearly understand what is what and I do not see all the connections. Therefore, I wouldn't recommend it.
This is the worst and for some reason we use it for classes ... 21 Jan. 2015
By Jerk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
wouldn't suggest this to anyone. There are much clearer easier to read books out there. This is the worst and for some reason we use it for classes in the US. Some retard who has no idea how to engage the US reader wrote this crap. Worthless. I am complaining to the university today.
