Book covers all aspects of corporate governance.
The text provides various stakeholders who provide input and pressures into the corporate governance process.
With the dynamic political system, globally, the book already appears out of touch with the reality emanating from the changes in the legislative agenda and rethinking at the corporate boards.
Book is written in simple format, devoid colloquialism, making learning easy for English and non-English speakers.
The text connects the dots and avoids inconsistencies in the points made.
The division of ideas between various components of corporate governance provides a streamlined approach.
As an editor and book contributor, I think the book as organized as the next academic book.
The book's functionality is very good. I used the online version to read through various sections.
The book is written and embedded into American corporate code of ethics and has no relevance to other courtiers.
The book can be applied to 300-400 level courses.
This book can be used as foundational reading for selected courses, yet exercises, quizzes, and other materials are required to supplement the reading.
For online learning, the book is linear and does not address the many needs of different types of learners for online environment.
Text considers only one type of learner, those who would only learn through reading text.
