Review:

"In Practice provides real world examples that bring theory to life and make concepts more memorable. Book Marks stimulate interest and have spurred some students to read the books outlined. Briefcase provides some thought provoking tips and captures the essence of the topic described. These all enhance and add another dimension to the text."

"Daft's text is still the best in the field. I am using it every single year and have updated my thinking about design issues with every single edition since it was introduced into the market. What I like about Daft's text is the logic by which students learn to appreciate the complexity of organization-environment relationships and the enormous value of matching structures and strategies. Integrating theoretical approaches with practical examples allows students to gain new knowledge and improve understanding of the reciprocal relationship between strategy and structure."
