This book was the text for my college strategic management class, and it was one of my favorite text books (and classes.) Many of my classmates also liked this it. The case studies were very interesting, and the book gave insight into successes and failures of well known and not so well known companies. It may be somewhat wordy, but it's packed with useful information and analysis.

As commented by other reviewers, the book is indeed wordy. However, its usefulness and value lies in the illustrative examples and Illustration Capsules. The basic principles of strategic management may be simple but its intrepretation and application in different circumstances make strategic management a critical thinking topic. This accounts to a good extent for the length of the book as Thompson & Strickland have included in the book numerous illustrative examples on the application of the concepts of strategic management in practical situations. The 12th edition also introduced two whole new chapters which addresses globalisation and the internet world. Further, nearly all the case studies in the book have been either replaced or up-dated. In fact, the 'up-to-dating' of the book, barely 2 years after the 11th edition hit the market clearly shows the changes in the business world which has merited the issue of the 12th edition. What would have been good would be chapter on Strategies in Managing Change & Transition as any programme in strategic management invariably has to address issue of change in organisations. A very good text on Strategic Management.

My senior management seminar class used the previous edition of this book. Reading this book is the verbal equivalent of valium -- but not as much fun. You'll be snoozing in no time.
And the other reviewers aren't kidding about the book being WAY too wordy. It takes a ton of pages to explain any concept. It's almost as if the authors thought that in order to make the textbook look legit for a management class, they had to make it ridiculously thick. Boooooorrrrrring.

I found the book to be extremely wordy. As I read the book, I found myself having to remind myself what the chapter (or topic) was suppose to be covering. Many of the statements in the book are common sense and points are repeated over and over through-out the text. The books is loaded with long list consisting of from 4-12 items. The list appear to be attempts by the authors to include every possible idea they could think of. My Professor used the questions from the test bank and many of the answers were buried in the readings. The cases studies were interesting, and the information on the website helps with the case analysis. Although after reading one of the chapters, any reading was interesting. Reading this book became a chore. If the book is required for class, start reading now because the way the book is written will make you procrastinate.
