5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, a "6 stars" rating isn't available..., 11 July 2003

This review is from: Economics of Strategy (Hardcover)
Well, I have read many books on strategy and organization but none has been so thorough, exciting and intuitive as this! Insisting on "the need for economic principles", the authors explore a considerable number of topics in industry evolution and firm dynamics in a very consistent, analytic and understandable manner. In contrast to most books adopting a purely qualitative analysis that disorients most serious strategy readers, this book provides a thorough quantitative arsenal for analyzing effectively and consistently almost every possible business situation... In brief: If you think business is a game, then this book is definitely its Manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE MBA book on "economical" Strategy, 30 Jan 2000

Excellent book! The book covers (all) the aspects of Microeconomics/Strategy in a fantastic and very readable manner. Ok, there's quantitative stuff, but kept down to a minimum. Personally, one of the view "must buy" text books in strategic management.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 15 Mar 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Economics of Strategy (Hardcover)
Well beyond the touchy-feely strategy approach, this book explores the details behind the economic reasoning of strategic decisions of the firm. Many examples, and theory that really forms the backbone of strategy. Excelent chapters on dinamics of pricing rivalry, isolating mechanisms of competitive advantage, vertical and horizontal integration, strategic positioning and more. Cover the basics and the advaced strategy knowledge in a well written manner. Very good MBA textbook.

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete and diversified analysis of strategic issues..., 1 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Economics of Strategy (Hardcover)
Covers the main issues of Strategy that corporations and individuals must analyse before making a new investment. Gives lots of examples and simple, but very comprehensive, theoretical and mathematical applications. The use of industrial economics and microeconomics models are very soft and fitted with the subject covered. Above all, it's a strategy book that covers the main issues and theories with a educational sense of organisation and sequence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book which combines Economics and Strategy, 15 July 2004
This review is from: Economics of Strategy (Hardcover)
Truely outstanding book. Comprehensive coverage of the economic reasoning behind strategic decisions. Shame most consulting firms may have never heard of this. If there is only one book in your life you want to read about strategy and economics then this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very insightful book regarding Economics of Strategy, 20 Jun 2011
This review is from: Economics of Strategy (Paperback)
I purchased this book after a teacher of my MSc course recommended it. I found out that this book contains detailed information on all important subjects that anyone interested in Economics of Strategy (and who doesn't necessarily have already any knowledge on the subject) should know. It is very comprehensive for students especially, without students being the only ones who will find it interesting. A very important feature that this book has is the variety of real-life examples of the practices that you read about, which make you understand better how the theory that you are reading is applied in practice. Additionally, a loud "Bravo!" goes to the authors due to the updated examples that are included and are even dated until 2009 - 2010!
