Format: Paperback
This is required reading for a college course I'm taking. It is more of a review of things I have covered in other business courses. Nothing earth shattering and very dry reading.

I am writing concerning the 2003 version, which is certainly very similar.

Not only is there nothing in this book that a basic course wouldn't cover, but the writing is awkward, inept, and disorganized. There are cute little quotes and cases included that would only detract from the information flow if there were an information flow. And there are outright errors.

If your prof assigned this book, run, don't walk, to the registrar's and get a different prof.

I needed this for a college class and found it to be a good read. Chapters were a bit long but the breakdown of sections was helpful. Might not be worth getting just for pleasure but it was definitely great for the class I used it for, which was a strategic management class.

If you are the type of individual who is looking for more than just showing up to work for a paycheck, this book will provide you with a wealth of information on creating a competitive advantage. I used the kindle version and loved it. It was each to read, I could highlight certain areas, or bookmark them. I could also pull up a definition if I needed to. This book was full of great examples that helped m to understand the point that they were trying to teach. It was easy to read but hard to put down.

Format: Paperback
I was required to purchase this book for a Global Competitive Strategy core course (MBA/The College of William & Mary). This book is very well written, concise, and informative. It does contain principles that I have learned in other courses, e.g. marketing; however, the information is applied to the overall business strategy.

Used this for my senior level strategic management class at Texas Tech. Not really worth too much time, but has very useful charts/examples. If you were asked to buy this book for an upper level senior class, I would say...no. The ideas have already been presented to you before. Great for an intro to management class, though.

This is your standard Strategic Management text. It's got some interesting and fairly current information on the financial meltdown. There is a new edition available, but my professor uses this edition exclusively. I would love to see if the new text has a lot of updated information on current companies.

Fast delivery, no hassle, and way cheaper than renting through bookstore and KB books. Senior year and I'm finally able to use amazon. Bookstore is such a rip off... they always get you with those access codes.
