I take care of my books (sell some back, keep the others) I would have liked to keep this one but the publisher did a lousy job.
I wrote the publisher with my complaints and they have not bothered to respond.
Dont buy this book unless you have to.
The content of this book is good. It's been a pleasant surprise to read through compared to other management and leadership textbooks that I've used in my degree program. The self-assessment exercises are good, and have raised my awareness of how I go about managing and leading. I think that's the point of the book, right?
The thing I don't like about this electronic addition is that almost every chapter has a page which reads "Text not available due to copyright restrictions". This is a great example of what is wrong with the textbook publishing industry here in the United States. Forget the fact that I paid $150 for the electronic version while the textbook publishers incurred zero extra expenses in preparing, printing, shipping and selling me the book. My problem is that I'm purchasing a copyrighted work from a publisher who cannot acquire the rights to all the materials they're indeed trying to print within this book. I suppose it would be too much to expect Cengage Publishing to take a little less icing on top of their cake and purchase the rights to reproduce and sell a complete product. It's a complete joke.
One minus I found in this book that examples and cases are not very interesting and clear.
Despite of this I think it is one of the TOP leadership books of our times.
I am very unhappy with their customer service but have filed Amazon's A to Z guarantee so maybe I can get my money back.
The worst part? The book they sent is worth about $34.00 on Amazon but I paid $105 for the book I was promised! Now I have to reorder because I can't wait and the price has gone up about $40!!
