From the Publisher:

One of the most comprehensive -- yet readable -- surveys of all major facets of business operations and management, this best-selling text moves from broad, general perspectives to focused coverage of specific business functions. A carefully orchestrated variety of boxes, cases, vignettes, illustrations, quotes, a running "field trip," interactive questions, and an informal first-person narrative all work together to draw students dynamically into the real world of contemporary business -- further enriched by a host of supplements, including a multimedia CD-ROM.
