Needs some editing but great info Dec 12 2010
By E. F. Jeffreys - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just completed the course for which I bought this book. I found numerous issues in the text, wrong words: "managerial" versus "marginal". Dollar figures in examples with transposed numbers. I also found numerous issues in the questions for the tests that evidently came with the text. Someone needs to do a thorough editorial review of the text and issue an a companion errata insert or downloadable document. Some of these issues are very real impediments to understanding the point being made. That said, the book is chock full of current and interesting information and articles and real world stories. My advice is if something isn't making sense to you, parse the sentence to see if you can determine if any of the wording or numbers could be wrong.

Begs for an Editor's Knife May 17 2011
By Etza - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It is common to find a few errors in a textbook, but "Transportation" has so many mistakes - grammatical and otherwise -- that it compromises the accuracy of the book. Parts of it are difficult, if not impossible, to understand. Perhaps to sidestep the negative connotation of the phrase, "what the traffic will bear" - i.e., using a monopoly to take the customer for all he is worth -- the author buries its definition in this impenetrable piece of prose:

"The second meaning, which can be more conveniently expressed in a negative form and which is germane to this discussion, is that no service should be charged a price that it will not bear when, at a lower price, the service could be purchased" (page 106).

On page 119, the author multiplies $8.46 x 110 and gets $93.06. On page 212, the book confuses the student with, "the cost of labor was $14.4 billion or $0.264 cents of every revenue dollar." It should have read, "26 cents". Worse, the facsimile of a commercial invoice on page 340 -- displaying Cost, Insurance, and Freight -- shows Incoterms FAS instead of CIF; such an invoice would never make it past an alert customs official. The sample bill of lading on page 342 is a blank form. More useful would be a commercial invoice and B/L that correspond to the same shipment and are both filled out correctly.

Expensive to rent, more expensive to buy Oct. 8 2013

Way too expensive. School book prices are ridiculous in my opinion. Authors could at least highlight the changes from previous editions to make the changes/updates easier to recognize. Just my opinion.

THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!! Don't forget you rented it. June 4 2014
By mike schumacher - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
So I rented the book for around $120 not paying attention to the purchase price if I didn't return the book. I accidentally sold the book and, realizing what I did, asked for it back. Unfortunately, the person I sold it to wouldn't return it. I ended up paying ANOTHER $315 for the book. I understand that I made a huge mistake and should have paid attention...but with that said, the book can be bought in great condition for far less than $435 dollars. I asked for them to meet me in the middle due to the market value of the book. Amazon told me to call Apex and Apex told me to call Amazon, they just kept pointing fingers at each other. Ultimately, I asked Apex to consider a small store credit to buy next semesters books from and they refused. They still would have made over a 100% profit off of me with the credit. Instead, they price gouged me to the tune of $400. While I should have paid better attention, this is still outrageous. Terrible company that won't help out someone who made a simple mistake. Don't buy from them!
