“This edition represents a massive rewriting and reorganization for which the authors should be commended. They have taken an already fine book and made it, I think, considerably better. It is, in short, the best industrial organization text for its level.” John Kwoka, Northeastern University
“I congratulate the authors on a job well done. The coverage of topics is complete and up to date, with many detailed examples that make these topics real to students.” Jill McCluskey, Washington State University
“This book strikes the perfect balance between real-world motivation of the various economic phenomena and exposition of formal economic models. This aspect, together with the exercises and complementary online material, has made it my preferred textbook for the undergraduate course.” Christos Genakos, Selwyn College
