"Sheer genius; the students actually read it for pleasure!" Lisa Fitzpatrick, Lytham St Annes High School, about the first edition "For me, accessibility is the key criterion in deciding whether to purchase a set of textbooks for class use, and I feel that this is the book's best feature. This textbook is engaging and accessible for both students and staff. Not only can it be used in class, but students can also use it independently." Review in Teaching Business & Economics from Jo Bentham, Subject Leader for Business and ICT at King Edward VI High School, Stafford
