Overview

Competitive Solutions is an entertaining and wide-ranging introduction to successful business methods applied to a variety of real-world situations. Rejecting the one-size-fits-all premise that underlies so many guides to business strategy, Preston McAfee develops the intellectual tools and insights needed to confront many marketplace problems. Drawing on his broad experience as a consultant for major U.S. companies, as well as extensive research, McAfee emphasizes cooperation, pricing litigation, and antitrust as vital to a firm's competitive posture - and focuses more attention on these elements than do most business strategy accounts.

McAfee cuts to the chase in this brief, but eloquently written book that provides an elegant and concise treatment of economics and business strategy. If you want to read one business book this year, this little gem should be the one. Great for students who want to better understand economics and the role of business, for managers who wish to improve firm productivity and employee morale, and for the common lay person who would like to sound a little more intelligent at the next cocktail party. This is a great read for all and I have covered it many times.
