'Exploring Strategy has had a world-wide impact as a text in strategic management and unusually has achieved this notable position with the very best of European scholarship and writing. The approach to strategy is inclusive; the writing is direct and accessible; the case examples are vivid and contemporary; and the material in the book is always being updated.'

'Exploring Strategy stands out as an excellent textbook on strategic management that covers all the basics yet, unlike other texts, adds onto this a coverage of strategy process and the practice of strategy. This coverage of both analytical and managerial aspects of Strategy makes it a highly relevant text for both undergraduate and MBA Students. A welcome addition to this edition is the feature "Thinking Differently" which is about cutting-edge theory related to each chapter of the book.'
Julia Balogun, Professor of Strategic Management and Director of University of Liverpool Management School.
'The book provides a very well structured, comprehensive, and clear overview of the art of strategic management, using many up-to-date real-world case studies from renowned companies and providing useful online resources for teachers. As such, the book is engaging, accessible and certainly one of the most "classroom ready" texts on strategy. It is a must-have for students, scholars, and practitioners'.
Dr. Florian Kapmeier, Professor for Strategy and International Project Management, Reutlingen University, ESB Business School
