“Covers retail math throughout the text instead of in its own section. Snapshot and trend watch are better than many articles I supplement from WWD. They are great, fresh applicable for classroom discussion. The overall text is a great, one-stop-solution to teach both buying concepts and actual retail math execution.” ―John Conte, Wade College, USA

“The text has good information relating to a buyer's role in retailing. . . A good text for a Basic Buying course.” ―Marla Green, LIM College, USA

“A good comprehensive text to show the traditional role of the buyer within the US market. With an easy to follow and logical sequence, it shows the breadth of tasks in the buying and merchandising function well.” ―Helen Beney, University of Westminster, UK
