Excelent book, well written, the most important concepts are not only highlighted but are placed on a box on the side, which makes it easy to identify them and saves a lot of highliting. There are many examples of real companies and how they relate to the concepts being learned.

I knew absolutely nothing about business before reading this text (my specialty is political science) and now I feel like I can open and operate my own business, start my own securities folder, and become an accountant. Ok not really, but this is still a really great book that allows someone like me (a business NOOB) TO "GET IT."

This book serves a function. That function is to teach one about the basic fundamentals of business. It has interesting anecdotes from time to time, but by and large it is a book for school. Want something entertaining that teaches about business? Find something else. Something that costs way less than this.

This book is very clear and easy to read. The definitions are highlighted and defined on the edges of the pages. Sections are divided well, and images captioned with relevant info. The book offers online quizzes and additional material to round out the learning experience. A good buy for Intro to Business courses.

This used-book is decorated with rainbow colors of highlight galore. It was bit hard on the eyes at first but then the $50 saving kind of balanced it out. Shipping was fast and the book is in faire condition. It serves the purpose. I will definitely buy again for future semester.

I was very pleased with my transaction. I received my book days before I expected it and the book was in good condition, exactly as it was described. I was kinda scared since I've never order books online, but I was pleasantly surprised with the fast service and good product.
