For Introduction to Business courses.

One of the most comprehensive-yet readable surveys of all major facets of business. This best-selling text moves from general perspectives to focused coverage of specific business functions. A carefully orchestrated variety of boxes, cases, vignettes, illustrations, quotes, interactive questions, and an informal first-person narrative all work together to draw students dynamically into the real world of contemporary business-further enriched by a host of supplements, including a multimedia CD-ROM free with each copy of the text.
