Wow! This professor taught at a no name college call Francis Marion University in Florence, SC. However, Harvard is also using his book to teach their students? What more can I say!

This is really the only book that I had no intention of selling back to the college. Gives you a great idea of how the companies mentioned in this book operate. It is also good if you are looking for information for investment purposes. This book seems to be updated so to keep you informed of current sector leaders, new trends, and techniques in business.
