Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Cases good for both individual and team activities. I especially like the "Bookmark" section and am glad to see support activities on the website. The writing style in these revisions is very conversational and easy for students to read. — Pat Theriot

Good job taking a huge subject area and distilling it down to the basics. Students will appreciate the concise but thorough concept discussion. — Dorothy Dean
