Review:

The title of this text, The Future of Business, sets the tone for my class. I encourage my students to look ahead, identify trends, and stay one step ahead of "current." This text has a very up-to-date look and a forward-looking perspective.

I chose this textbook because of its conceptual approach and dynamic nature. This is an immediate message that "business" is a constantly evolving and open-ended system, reliant upon human creativity, sensitivity, and ambition. The chapter summaries at the end of each chapter are so effective that I advise students to begin with these. The format and organization are the best I have seen.

Chapter 18, Using the Internet for Business Success, adds a nice touch. It is much more appropriate over the boxes and panels of Web address and the typical Surfing the Net exercises found in most introduction to business textbooks.

This text has clear writing that is at the student level of abstraction, good chapter organization, and great graphics that catch and keep young student interest.
