I needed this book for my business course (Business Ethics) this semester. I is an easy read, however, I also ordered the older edition for comparison... They pretty much are exactly the same. No fault on the book itself, but I did want to note that incase someone who can't afford the more costly edition needs an alternative to get there school.

This title is not available on the cloud reader for Google Chrome, or the android app that you can download on your phone. Some other people are saying this is not the complete version of the book, but I can't even verify that because I can't open the ebook without a Kindle, which isn't something I possess. This is really inconvenient.

Trying not to take the course out on this book.

the book is well written and there are certainly good points that could be taken.

but my professor didn't write the plan for this book, so, we're answering questions more on "what do you think" rather than anything substantiating from the book.

The quality of the book is on par with other books I've bought. There are no indications of it inadvertently wandering off, which is nice. It's been on my desk for about 3 weeks, unopened. I'm sure I'd be interested more, if the course needed more interest.

well organized, and when it comes to text books that's what counts. hopefully the school continues to use it for a couple more semester, then they do most textbooks.

I prefer eBooks over hard copy for various reasons, and love that in this day and age we can have e copies that are exact copies of the tangible books.

THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE BOOKS!

In example, on page 18 half the page is grayed out stating "Text not available due to copyright restrictions". Looking at a classmates tangible book it is a story of a waitress, that does not name any specific company, that is from an anonymous source... I would love an explanation on how a book I paid for can violate any type of copyright restriction; in particular in this case. Also, please give me a full refund for this incomplete book.

The cases presented are dated. The authors should consider refreshing the book with timely material to capture the interest of younger students.
