If you have Windows 8 or Galaxy S II, do not try to purchase this ebook format. Neither of those devices/program support NookStudy which is required for reading this book.

This is largely dry material, but Robbins & DeCenzo manage to guide the reader through the book on a well-designed path that covers the essentials, skips the superfluous, and offers excellent additional resource materials in the endnotes section at the back of the book.
