After meeting with more than 1,000 students and instructors they developed Technology in Action. Due to overwhelming success, they recently published Technology in Action 10/e!

This was a required textbook for a class I was in. I love the ability to get my books digitally, but was frustrated to find that this was only able to be read on the Kindle Fire. I bought a Fire with a small screen to save space, knowing that I could read books on my laptop when I needed to view the full pages. This feature wasn't available to me in the digital purchase. Had I known this in advance I would have most likely purchased a hard copy. It left me very frustrated over the course of my semester.

I have tried a galaxy 5S, a tablet, and a lap top and it's not compatible with anything. It, to be perfectly clear, sucks eggs.

This textbook is actually a pretty good read. The writers keep you interested. Needed this book for my Computer Science course. Purchased used at a great price! Make sure you buy Technology in Action "Complete" version. I almost purchased the wrong version.

I got this for a CIS class, the book is laid out well and broken down into smaller sections within chapters- made for easy reading overall.

The book came 4 weeks after the class started. Really upset about now I don't need it it.
For petes / heavens sakes, find another vendor besides the group I used. Yes they were the cheapest but not the fastest.

Honestly, just get the MS Ofc 2013 book and the online MyITLabs w/ pearsons eText, it includes the digital version of the Tech in action.

The author has put a lot of effort in explaining everything about the topic and he is successful in it. This book proves very helpful for me as I learned a lot of new information from this book.

Book is written in very easy to understand language and I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in such topics.

This is a very good text that provides introductions and overviews of most areas in information technology. I'm sure I'll be using this as a reference for some time to come.
