  • The text is very heavy on the theory and provides a good background in the subject matter. Less pompous writing style could make it more readable. There are numerous spelling errors and instances of the words confused (tack instead of track, stricture instead of structure). Maybe upcoming editions will be better.

    This book is really disappointing. When the it was delivered at home, I thought the box was empty: the book is as thin as a magazine!

    The content is very theorical, completely useless for executives.

    Maybe OK for students who have no clue at all about what strategy is, but definitely useless for executives.

    This book paints a good landscape of the evolution of strategy management over time. Even though the book has only 6 chapters the material is somewhat dense. I found myself doing a lot of re-reading to understand the details. Its extremely comprehensive though if you have a strong background in strategy and/or are pursuing your MBA and its you last semester.

    If you’re the average joe blow who’s trying the understand the basics of strategy management I’m sure there are easier books out there you may want to read.

    the picture on the front cover is very nice. As far as the text goes, you are better off waiting for the movie. This is three or four pages of information drug out into a full book. Yikes.

    Excellent book. Highly recommended. This book is probably the best introduction and overview about strategic management. It will _quickly_ bring you upto speed about the latest thinking in this area and take you further. It talks about core concepts that do not die with time. References are provided so as to let you delve into details if need be.

    If you are just getting into this area or have been working in this area for a while, no matter where you come from, this will be awesome reading. Excellent cases are provided, so you can really apply what you learnt to the cases and do the analysis.

    What I really liked about the book was that I could read the book and apply what I’ve read to my company’s strategic management process.
