5.0 out of 5 stars Same item, better deal. Feb. 12 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this version of textbook instead of buying the Canadian version and I am very pleased with the result. You can only get the Canadian version in hardcover, which is heavier and more expensive. This one is exactly the same, but was a third of the price and is easier to read and lighter in my backpack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely buy it!! Nov. 2 2006
By U. Hasan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A great book, best thing i loved about it were the case studies...it has around atleast three cases for each chapter (and full length cases like 2-8 pages, not those single problem 1 paragraph cases). Learn soooo much more by the cases cuz they emphasize the decisions taken by the controller and the criteria used to choose among alternatives. If you got a good facillatator to guide discussion, you can get seriously engaged in the case study, especially if there are others with counter views...get the book, or you can also get one of the older editions and a used one is real cheap, not that much changes bw the editions, ive got the latest 12th edition, a 10th edition and also an Indian edition by Tata McGrawhill.
