It troubles me, having a PhD in information systems, that this is the bestselling book for information systems.

This book is written by a guy that has not done MIS research for 15 years. The empirical statements (current status of use of information and communication technology (ICT), for instance) are relatively grounded. But the more conceptual questions - how to theorise and conceptualise the use and development of ICT are not. There is not many references to the academic field, making it difficult to use it as an efficient guide to read deeper on your own. To give an example, I am for instance referring to conceptualisation of "what is an information system", or the "systems development life cycle".

In these aspects, I cannot see how it keeps in touch with the academic field of information systems. The author is excluding a lot of different perspectives in favour of his own. But this is not clear for a newcomer to the field, as it is implicit.

On the other hand, I have never seen an anglo-american primer in MIS that is more strongly linking to the field. Nevertheless that is standard in many fields (e.g. psychology or political economy). Therefore,I expect that I would end up giving most primers a two-star...I have no better recommendation, except for reading the more advanced (but focused) books directly - normally intelligent people would be able to do so without any IT experience.

Another weird thing with this book is that it comes in many different, localised, editions, just like electronics. One might almost expect that it is in order to confuse buyers.

HASH(0x9da0784c) out of 5 stars Not a huge fan 27 Dec. 2011
By pelk - Published on Amazon.com

This is the second loose-leaf type book I have had to purchase and I'm not impressed with the quality of this one so far. The paper the pages are printed on are much to thin (especially considering the price) and I have been tearing them constanly trying to read for my class (Embry Riddle). I like the loose leaf option, but I think quality paper needs to be used.

I mean its a textbook for me, so not much to say about its quality. According to my prof, its one of the best books for learning management information system. The delivery process is very fast and it arrived in a good shape.

No the greatest and most entertaining textbook ever, but couldnt be avoided since it was required for the course. Looseleaf is the cheapest option for me other than the hardcover.
