My daughter needed this book, together with a "student access key" for a course she was taking. The description of the product says "The new online resources no longer require a passkey". But it turns out that the "passkey" is not the same thing. The student access key is another $80!! So if you need the student access key with this book, do not buy this edition. Buy it from your school's bookstore. I could have bought it there and saved over $50.

I can't find my Introduction to Business textbook from college so I thought I'd buy a new one from Amazon to use as an occassional reference as needed. After taking a look at the contents of this textbook recommended by an online course, I can understand why so many businesses fail today. Who are these people writng these currect business textbooks? Academics -- progressive academics? This book has more in "green" propaganda and "planet" responsibility emphasis than information on what it takes to be a successful business person. If this is what is being taught as an introduction to business, it's telling as to why we have so many incompetent CEO's today.

An introduction to the system of capitalism should include an emphasis on how the market place dynamics work, customer centered product development and services; advancement in the internet; distribution options, etc. Socialism does not work - as proven by today's mess in Europe, not to mention all the fallen prototypes. If you want to teach the moral and ethical matters that affect the company, its community, the planet, etc., create another course and offer it as an elective. Academia needs to get business people to write business textbooks -- or we are going to continue to see further decline in our economy and continued failure of business in general.

I received my order quickly but the hardback book was supposed to be new and the cover was messed up. I felt it wasn't new and I did pay the new price.

I am more upset with the shipping of this product. When I placed the order, the Amazon screen stated " to receive this by friday". I paid for the expedited shipping. I did not receive this book until Monday. I needed it Satuday. The small print was no where to be seen when I placed the order. But it was there when I was checking on the shipment Friday when it didn't arrive on time. I wasted all that money for nothing. You should have a warning pop up when expedited shipping is clicked. That was not right.
