Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a well-organized textbook that incorporated contemporary topics and issues and illustrated the material with examples from public and private institutions. Review materials at the end of each chapter were highly supportive. However,I found reading the textbook extremely fatiguing on my eyes and cumbersome. The glossy paper reflected light rather than it illuminating the page. Page layouts were attractive and the small font packed a great deal of material but the combination of small, tight lettering and off-black ink contrasted less well against the white page. The color inserts were particularly difficult to read.

If you want to read a book and learn outdated data base terms and definitions for a business model, this book is for you. It will not teach you how to use anything.

This book provides some very good information. I purchased the kindle copy and was quite satisfied with the layout, content and navigation. What I was not pleased with, is the constant and obviously biased comments for one particular technology company and their products. Reading this book, I know what brand of laptop, cellphone and tablet the authors probably have and I find that disappointing. A textbook is supposed to inform, not convey biased information.

Very exclusive to the information of technology. It did not wander backward and forward with the information. It stuck to the chapter acknowledgement and subject matter.

The font size is too small for non-traditional students. That's my only complain.There are many examples from real business world in this textbook.
