5.0 out of 5 stars What it says on the tin!
It was short but very interesting! Summed up a lot of useful points and areas and gave a great foundation to learning about stragey. It's written very well, good detail but in a lighter tone and offers good references.

2.0 out of 5 stars All theory- no practical insights or frameworks
This book is simply a condensed tome of theories on strategy. It does little to inform about any practical approaches to applying strategy. The book will be of use to college students looking for a concise overview of theory. It will not however be of much use to someone looking for a practical framework for approaching strategic initiatives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview and easy to read, 7 May 2011
This review is from: A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Studying Strategy (Very Short, Fairly Interesting & Cheap Books) (Paperback)
A short, well written and easy to read overview of strategic management - going through strategic theory and then highlighting the importance of power and politics. I liked the examples, for example using Porter's diamond to illustrate the success of the music industry in Manchester.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice book, 14 April 2011
This review is from: A Very Short, Fairly Interesting and Reasonably Cheap Book About Studying Strategy (Very Short, Fairly Interesting & Cheap Books) (Paperback)
it's a nice book. It covers most key points of Strategic management.
However, the sentences are a little bit hard to read by a non English-speaker.
