This is a popular textbook as evidenced by being the 16th edition. It reads well and is current. However, there is a huge downfall that I can't get past and I put the blame squarely on Amazon. The eBook is restricted to two devices! How the heck is something I own so restricted? Also, why wasn't this information made available to me before purchase? I have five devices that I switch between when reading and doing homework. Of the five, I am now limited to two. This kind of restrictive behavior is ludicrous. If I had known this policy beforehand I would have bought the physical textbook. Shame on you Amazon for allowing this author to employ such a stringent restriction and not warning your customers before purchase.
I am approaching this solely at a economical standpoint. Sure, the content is great and it covers the aspects of business well. However, what sold me was saving $200 dollars compared to the university bookstore, and $100 from amazon's paperback price. The content transferred over just fine from the paperback version, as sometimes that is an issue with kindle versions of textbooks. If you have access to a kindle/iPad, I would definitely go this route.
I wasn't aware that I have to purchase an additional "access code" for WileyPlus. This was a true disappointment since the cost of the book was not cheap. Maybe this should be noted before purchasing that the WileyPlus access code is an additional cost.
