International Business by Ball et.al. is a great book. I just took my last exam from WIU. The book is current and has material covering up-to-date content. Many of the companies listed in the book are large American Corporations (Coke,GE, Kraft, MacDoanlds, etc.) just to name a few. If you are going to take a course in International Business requiring this textbook, contact me for a good price on a like new textbook with clean pages and the code the has never been used. [...] for details. I purchased this book new from Amazon for $168.00 last August.

This book does a good job at explaining the do's and don't of international business. If you are seeking to explore the foreign market and/or are a college student majoring in business, this book is a MUST!! I am learning so many things about the trade, business and all the above.

This books is not half-bad. It takes the complexity of all the facets of International Business and rolls it up into an economic study of the global market. The website that it references in some of the exercises though is unnecessary as they can be found just by searching Google. What is the point?

I purchased the Kindle edition of this textbook so I wouldn't have to lug around a laptop and a heavy book for school. Unfortunately I had to buy an actual textbook because the Kindle edition is terrible. It freezes up while reading and I am unable to search for key words. I would not recommend this Kindle book to anyone.

It was suppose to be in vary good condition but its more in good because the binding and corners are warped and frayed but no writing inside what so ever. For nearly $80 less than the campus bookstore's used version I am vary happy

This book is very well written and is highly knowledgeable. A must book for Masters in International Business students. American, Canadian and U.K Universities listed them for business courses for masters students.

This is a great book so far. Been going over a few chapters in my International Business class. If you can, but the book online because in most stores it's way more expensive. I recommend Amazon!
