    Very good introduction to Managing an Information System

    This text book is a good starting place for managers to learn about information systems and how to implement them into their own companies. I bought this book for a class on information systems, and not only did I find the book very thorough, but the web site gives the readers a chance to understand what they read by providing outlines and brief quizzes. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about computer based information systems, or wants to stay up to date on current business practices

    Hard dry read

    This book is really difficult to read and is very redundant on seemingly pointless information. The accompanying website is way to large to cover it all. If I could give it no stars I would.
