I was so excited when this book was been released, as the last version, I loved so much.
The main changes are the layout of the book, the reference in the margin is great, and most UNI books are doing this lately.
The paper quality could have been a little better ( a little thin) and will be easily worn.
I haven’t been complete sold on the new version, I still go back o the previous version, because I know where everything is.
Once again the information is great, and updated, which is the main thing, to keep moving forward.
Improvements – links to other Business theory could be make it a plus when completing assignments. Thinker paper.
Overall happy and will properly love it totally once use to the new version
