This book was used as the text for my college introductory information sciences class to expose us to the complex world of business and computer/information integration. It is a great introductionary book for beginner info. sci. students or if you just want a good read to learn about ERP systems. It was really fun to read because it was not written in a highly technical manner. In reality the book uses humor and down to earth explanations to convey concepts to the reader making for a clearer understanding. A GREAT read!Was this review helpful?
