Most Helpful Customer Reviews
ok, I'm totally biased toward HBR. I enjoy reading all their material. I've never been disappointed. Worth it. I'd buy it again. I'm going to eventually own a nice e-collection. Which is great because I don't have to through them away because they are taking up to much space.
