Es un excelente texto de apoyo para la docencia. Tanto mis alumnos como yo lo hemos utilizado. Es importante el aporte de los autores con los casos de estudio que entregan en cada capitulo, que permite en tender y reforzar los conceptos vertidos en el mismo

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely buy it!! November 2, 2006
A great book, best thing i loved about it were the case has around atleast three cases for each chapter (and full length cases like 2-8 pages, not those single problem 1 paragraph cases). Learn soooo much more by the cases cuz they emphasize the decisions taken by the controller and the criteria used to choose among alternatives. If you got a good facillatator to guide discussion, you can get seriously engaged in the case study, especially if there are others with counter views...get the book, or you can also get one of the older editions and a used one is real cheap, not that much changes bw the editions, ive got the latest 12th edition, a 10th edition and also an Indian edition by Tata McGrawhill.
