It is concise and simple but not “simpler” than it should be as it manages to cover the main areas of strategic management in a very clear, pedagogical but still academically rigorous way. – Emanuel Gomes, Coventry University

The language does not over-complicate the topic. I think it is well-pitched, easy to understand and has good contemporary practical examples. – Kevin Burt, University of Lincoln, UK

It is very easy to read and easy to understand for undergraduate students. –Evgeny Polyakov, University of Huddersfield

I particularly liked…the brief biographies of the management gurus. – Jim Keane, University of Gloucestershire
