"I love the strong disciplinary foundation in I/O economics and financial economics. This more than anything distinguishes the book from its peers."
-- Dr. Brain Shaffer, University of Maryland, College Park
"I like that the subjects are presented completely with topics organized around strategies, not environments. Also, I like that strategy formulation and implementation are discussed together rather than as separate topics."
-- Dr. Jacquelynne McLellan, Frostburg State University
"The single thing I like best about this test is its excellent grounding in the strategy literature. As one who tries to bring current research into the classroom and be very up front about where the literature is in flux, I--and the students--really appreciate the way this text opens up the theory."
-- Dr. Ken A. Smith, Syracuse University
