The book is very redundant and has numerous grammar errors. The same material could have been delivered with 60% less pages. This is quite a disappointment considering it's a 5th edition textbook.

As an instructor who just used this book at the recommendation of a colleague, let me just say that my overall view of this textbook can be summed up with one word: redundant.

To be sure, this textbook contains a huge amount of material and goes in significant depth to cover details of the purchasing function. However, there's so much redundant material among the chapters that I ended up covering maybe less than 1/4 of the actual chapters. I had to stitch together several parts from different chapters in order to ensure that students are not inundated with material that had already been covered in past chapters.

It is apparent that authors aimed to gift this textbook to academia as an "all-in-one" textbook to cover both supply chain management and purchasing classes. Unfortunately, content redundancy hinders effective coverage of either topic without significant "Frankensteining."

This textbook is better suited for a supply chain class with a purchasing slant. Authors must streamline content before this book can be effectively utilized to teach a dedicated purchasing class.

The book was pretty user friendly. No real complaints about it. It's not the most interesting subject but the writer did manage to make it quite readable and easy to study.

I bought this book for my college class and found it so valuable and full of good info that I kept it instead of trading in. Good general book to reference if you work in supply chain.

Really fast and efficient for quick study questions. The find option is extremely helpful vs the conventional flipping through pages.
