"I really like the self-assessment exercises at the end of each chapter. Students are required to do them each week to earn bonus points. It really helps them see how their personality and perceptions fit in the world of management."- Tim McCabe, Tompkins Cortland Community College

"The text highly readable with good examples and the length of chapters is about right." - Howard Stanger, Canisius College

Beyond My Expectations May 22, 2011
by
I purchase my college text books through ecampus and the purchase is very smooth. The price is very suitable and the book arrived earlier than the delivery date and in a very good condition for a used textbook exactly as a described. The seller was also very helpful and responded to my emails very quickly. Ecampus provided excellent customer service, therefore, I will, without a doubt purchase books from this company in the future.
