I am approaching this solely at a economical standpoint. Sure, the content is great and it covers the aspects of business well. However, what sold me was saving $200 dollars compared to the university bookstore, and $100 from amazon's paperback price. The content transferred over just fine from the paperback version, as sometimes that is an issue with kindle versions of textbooks. If you have access to a kindle/iPad, I would definitely go this route.

Shipping came extremely fast and looked brand new, but there was not an access code to wileyplus so now I must pay $110 to buy one online!

I wasn't aware that I have to purchase an additional "access code" for WileyPlus. This was a true disappointment since the cost of the book was not cheap. Maybe this should be noted before purchasing that the WileyPlus access code is an additional cost.

Although this time I can actually read the book, it is very clumsy to navigate. I can zoom in to make the text larger but this is not like reading a regular book on Kindle. It's as if someone spent the very minimum amount of time on this book and slapped it together with bare bones basics. What's worse is Amazon's Kindle App for PC does not work with Windows 8 - only Windows 7. They don't tell you this BEFORE you buy, so now I'm out $50 and have a book I can only see three inches of at a time.

I already returned one eTextbook for a similar issue, but wont be able to return this one since I have a paper due in this class. Will I use the book? Mostly the answer is NO I won't be able to use this horrible excuse of a book for the subject that I bought it for. The only thing I can use it for is looking up terms and searching the Internet for the answers (which hopefully match the book).

I am absolutely furious right now as I have four chapters to read and no book.

Just fyi Barnes & Noble have both of these textbooks in an ereader format. I've seen and used both on my computer but naturally can't use it on my Kindle. No - Amazon owns all the books I own really. I can't copy them, transfer them or open them on any other device unless it is through their good graces. Wow thanks Amazon you're grate (and yes - grate as in the cheese as in my nerves as in GRATING.

Soon our children will choose which University to attend based on what operating system they prefer. Do they have a Nook, a Kindle, a Droid? OH Mom, I'm sorry I can't go to BYU, they only support Kindle.

Who knew?

Excuse me while I go try to return this worthless item.

Less expensive option for this book for my business class. Came with companion site as described BUT not with wiley plus code, which was fine. I was able to buy the code from my university and the total cost was still less than buying both from the university. Compare your prices (totals) before you purchase!

Are you serious? I can't modify the text size at all? I just bought replaced my Paperwhite with a Fire to read this. You know, the book is good but I can't believe I have to read this like this. Why is it that I can do it on a computer kindle reader but not this? Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Rented this book for my academic class. Great style of writing, very informative and uses very clear and pertinent examples from real businesses. It's still a text book read, but it has a lot of interesting tidbits among the educational information.
