Product description

Review

"The writing style is engaging, and the text is one of the more readable texts that I've seen."

"The textbook covers almost every aspect of global business that I like to cover in my course."

"I wanted to thank you for writing GLOBAL BUSINESS. It is very informative and entertaining. It is nice to have information presented in a way that is actually exciting and thought provoking, something I have found that many other business texts are lacking. I feel like I am learning to think for myself about important global issues instead of being indoctrinated to think the way mainstream ideologies dictate as 'right' or 'wrong.'"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great business textbook 2 July 2015
By John Buckner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Absolutely love this book. I had this book for an international business class and the information/presentation was perfect. The book is one of the most engaging texts I have ever read. This book appears to be at the right length for a business book, and the examples used are relevant and easy to understand. I recommend this book for any body who is interested in int'l biz.

It's a business book. After purchase, I realized the only reason we probably were forced to buy it for class was because the professor helped edit it.
