I had to rent the latest 12 edition for my Intro to Business course, because it was very expensive to purchase. I wanted a copy for my home library and ended up purchasing the 11th edition, which I found to be structured the same as the 12th. This book is excellent, and if you are interested or belong in business in any capacity, I would recommend owning it as it covers everything from business types, organization, finance, marketing, and so much more in the business world. There are real world examples and great questions that those in business may come across and need for reference purposes. Excellent read!

From the very first page I was intrigued and compelled to continue reading. Many business books are boring, dry, and more effective than Valium for putting me to sleep. Not this book! I highly recommend this excellent business book.

While, this was required reading, this was not a chore to read. Very easy and not verbose. I love the economy of words used. There was nothing overdrawn, and yet, it gave a great overview. I would recommend this book to anyone, not just a student, who needs an intro to business.
