The product was as I thought it would be. It was in great condition and arrived on time. I can't ask for any more.
Daft does a nice job

The case studies are really, really current and of reasonable depth - I enjoyed reading them so much I actually considered keeping this book. In all, the author uses real world examples to convey the message; I couldn't think of a better way to teach the subject.
One of the best in its field

In my opinion this is one of the best text books on management I read. I am using it extensively with undergraduate students for whom the English is a foreign language, and still they do not encounter any difficulties, either in understanding the text or the cases. Arie Aviram Ph.D.
A great investment for learning about management

I had the opportunity of reading the book as part of an MBA course. I found it difficult to put down. The content presented logically and discusses contemporary as well as historic theories. The writing style makes it very interesting to read.Each concept is strengthened with business problems and solutions. There are helpful questionnaires, case study questions. They also help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. The great thing about it is that these problems are real ones. All the definitions are listed out on the margins which is great for quick reference and studying.The CD-ROM has some useful clips and software. If you are new to management or want to brush up your managment knowledge my advice is - go for it.Its a good book.
GREAT for Starters and Juniors on Business Administration !!

I am doing well as a Senior Software Engineer working for a multinational in Europe, but I have NO knowledge about Business Administration at all :( . I have recently started a MBA course and Daft's "Management" is the first book that we are working on, in the class. The structure of this book really helps a lot people who may be good Engineers with an analytical way of thinking, but have no idea about Management and BA. Easy-reading, with contemporary real-life examples, contains TQM, MBO and all the latest trends in Management. The Summaries and Case Studies at the end of each chapter are very handy. Starts with the simples and gradually takes you to much deeper in BA. If you alreay have a career and want to change your path to a more managerial (and less engineering) level in the market, then this is the book for you...
