The author states up front that this book doesn't delve deeply into current IS platforms, which is fine, but why not at least direct us to other resources that do a good job of this?
The book is giving a decent review of various business models and isn't too technically intensive. For my purposes, this is a plus, but perhaps others would find this a detriment. Again, it would be nice to be pointed to other resource to fill this gap.
Given that I complain about grammar and typos, I hope my review is relatively free of them.
The book is in excellent condition. I'm using it for a Managing Information Systems Class.
Very thorough with good detail and information on current companies.
