Review:

I was impressed by the focus on achieving competitive advantage, which is reflected in the title and adhered to consistently throughout the text. This is unique among the texts I've seen in this discipline

I didn't choose the text -- it was selected by another faculty member who generally teaches the class. I would choose it myself, however, based on the good "fit" with my students. It gives great "real life" examples that help them see how these concepts work in today's businesses. They enjoy the examples, since they know the businesses. It's written at a good level for them, even though the concepts still seem challenging!

First and foremost, the clear focus on building and sustaining competitive advantage. This focus fits perfectly with our use of a business level simulation in the strategy classes. No other product on the market comes close.
