I purchased this textbook because it is required for a course I am taking at a nearby college. The chapters are presented in a clear and concise comprehensible format, and further emphasized within text to enhance material. This textbook has long been popular with readers because of its lively writing, up-to-date examples, and clear explanations of theory. I highly recommend this cheap textbook and I can say it is the best textbook you can buy for this field :)

The authors believe that businesses have social (as well as economic) responsibilities to society; that business and government both have important roles to play in the modern economy; and that ethics and integrity are essential to personal fulfillment and to business success.

In addition, this textbook has long been popular with students because of its lively writing, up-to-date examples, and clear explanations of theory
