Product Description

From the Back Cover

Over 750,000 students worldwide have used this best-selling book through their academic and professional careers.

Join them today and stay at the top of the class with the 8th edition of Exploring Corporate Strategy!

By far the best book in the field I have ever read! It makes the study of Strategy interesting! [The authors] relate theory to real-life examples which are up to date with current business news. I would most certainly recommend this book to anyone! The on-line features are excellent as well.

I found this book to be invaluable during [my] Strategic Management module. During my written assignment (which I passed easily) I drew heavily on the concepts and ideas introduced in this publication.

It has a lot of theoretical models explained through case studies and many examples. What is mot interesting is that are many versions of this book, with those case studies inside the text, or posted on the web site, or with a cd/dvd inside.
Not to forget, it has even a key concept revision chapter, which is really good for exam preparations.
So I think it's a great book, good purchase in my case at least

I had the book as course literature when studying Strategy during my MBA. In addition I had one of the authors as lecturer.

I found the author highly theoretic in his approach and he unfortunately showed to have little understanding for practical matters in strategy when students with real life experience had differing opinions in class.

I tried to compensate for this by reading the book, but soon switched to other lecturers lecture notes which were clearer and more applicable.

I would have rated the book as 1, but chose to give it a 2 since I have not spent enough time going through the material once I shifted to other sources.

Very good conditions. It did take a little bit long to reach home, but thankfully I wasn't desperate to receive it. A plus was the CD that came with it, which I didn't know was included.
