I downloaded the Kindle version onto my computer, since that's what I take to my classes with me. The kindle version doesn't have page numbers. So when my teacher would tell us to flip to a certain page, I couldn't find it. I'd instead be clicking from page to page to try to find where they were. It is fine for just reading the chapters at home, but with no page numbers it's a pain to try to follow along in class. I had assignments that would ask me to look at the diagram or chart on a certain page, and so I would have to try typing in certain key words in the search bar to try to find it in the book. It worked, but it took longer than just typing in the page number. I probably wouldn't recommend the kindle version unless that flaw is somehow fixed.

Not bad for a class assigned book, but I wish it came in an audible read, because it was a hard read especially on a kindle, but other than that ists' ok.

What a book! I am almost finished reading it and I am learning so much. Are you seeking to understand what your resources are? Do you want to know how to manage them? How to decide between this decision versus another? This is the book for you! It is a text book, so it has that scholarly appeal. Yet, it is completely practical and informational as Elizabeth discusses how life flows on a daily basis. We as human beings need to learn on how to effectively manage our lives and the lives of our families in such a way that we get the best that life has to offer. Get this book!
