"The writers are quite talented and I couldn't put the work down once I'd started reading. I liked it and I think the students will find it easy to read and very interesting. Yes, the chapter is very interesting. I enjoyed reading it and anticipate that students will react the same. It's very well written in a tone that will appeal to students..the length and depth are appropriate for a course designed to teach principles. The self-assessment and cases and vignettes are great." - Lenora Jill Adams, Navarro College
"Because they have brought in current vignettes and current examples that everyone can relate to, even non-MIS majors should be able to easily follow and understand the concepts presented. The authors have done a great job of covering all the current trends, especially in the area of system development for E-Commerce applications. Also, their examples of how companies are developing current systems to detect terrorism and anthrax scares are really pertinent and current." - Cynthia Barnes, Lamar University
"The writing is very direct, to-the-point, and easy for a university student to read and understand. I wouldn't change anything regarding readability." - John Melrose, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
