Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
* The book does a significantly better job of introducing, explaining, and diagramming analytical concepts than the other textbooks I've seen used for this course.
* It includes a lot of cases, as it should. About 2/3 of the cases are great; the other 1/3 are either too complex for an undergraduate curriculum (conglomerate-level corporate strategy) or don't include enough conflict (The IKEA case, for example, could be titled IKEA: How To Do Everything Really Well).
* It loses a star for the atrocious editing. Numerous typos, partially edited sentences, than/then your/you're errors, etc. make the book seem amateurish despite its quality content.
