The international edition of the 7th edition of International Business is a steal! It's the same as the hardcover US edition textbook word for word, but it's about $80 cheaper. As far as the textbook itself, it is very informative and easy to read.

I have used Charles Hill's textbook since 5th edition - it is now in 8th. While some aspects do dip into the arcane, especially economic theory, the book is the best I have found to produce a solid basis for an introduction to international business.

That said, in my view the textbook is not enough. The instructor must use resources such as the NY Times, WSJ and Economist. This is a very fast changing business field, and is headline driven. Relying solely on this textbook offers the students too little insights into fast changing paradigms and models.

Warning to instructors - the class supplements (Ppt charts, exam questions) have gotten weaker and you will need to supplement them with the above resources to ensure a vibrant and modern classroom experience.

This edition barely differs at all from previous editions and is already out of date. There is already a 9th edition being utilized. The index is horrible! I'm using it for an online class and it is very hard to refer back to something. Thin pages, bright white backgrounds, and TONS of extra stories added. I prefer simplicity, so this defintely wasn't my favorite.

It is a really great book, and I have noticed that the International Version is the same as the US Version. For the price, it's cheaper, so I think it was a great choice.

Well written text that covers many import international business topics. The charts and graphs are up to date. The case studies are very helpful. All in all a great text. It is one of the most read texts I have ever owned (and I am an engineer).

An informative book, however given it supposed to be international the focus is heavily american and on american institutions, not particularly helpful for other countries.

I really really disliked this book. It was a text for my International business class and it was entirely too long, too wordy, and redundant. I felt it repeated itself and the chapters were to long. It would be better to have less information in order to make more of an impact on the important items. Overall i think this is the worst international business book i have ever used.

Do not buy this for your Kindle. There are no page numbers so you're unable to skip or go back to certain pages if you need to. This will be the last time I buy a college book for my Kindle.
