Baye may try to remain current with new editions but, otherwise, I'm not impressed.

The book can use some more "real world" case studies that aren't more than a half a page as chapter introductions and a half dozen or so topics on the book's website.

Chapters only skim over topics, rarely link the topic back to a company application that the reader may be familiar with, and, in reality, the strategy part referred to in the title is missing.

I see little research outside of the material that has been parroted from other versions of this text or similar work by other authors. Examples on how to calculate something does not equal strategy; defining what to do after collecting information is strategy and then implementing it is called execution. Perhaps Mr. Baye can read up on Jim Collins, Ram Charan, and other people who do research on corporations and maybe even include actual quotes and examples of decisions made by managers using the topics in this book? After all, managerial economics is supposed to aide people in analyzing data and making decisions.

Number one managerial economics text? I don't see why.

Be aware that this is the international edition. It appears that it is the same book as the American edition, but if you are a stickler for things like that you may want to get a different copy.

The information in the text is fine and easy enough to follow, although the writing isn't particularly good. I do like the case studies that frame each chapter.

To me the real weakness are the questions at the end of the chapters. They aren't very clear or precise. I often preface my answers with, "I assume that they mean / want / are asking . . ."

This book is a great option for serious students of business strategy and economics. It is well constructed, easy to navigate, and clear. It does presume that the reader has a basic grasp of algebra and maybe some calculus. The only disappointment is that this book does come in a Kindle edition.

The book is good, but some parts of it could be outdated relatively soon. Overall, it has useful concepts that could help most aspiring business people.
