This book maintains the unique overall approach of the successful second edition: the right mix of traditional and leading edge topical coverage along with many hands-on, problem-solving projects. Haag works well for professors (and students) who want a very interactive, engaging experience, and for those who want to see a strong tie to the latest and greatest on the Internet and corresponding textbook website. The book is equally appropriate for both business and non-business majors. This revision now clearly distinguishes between technical and managerial topics key to MIS by organising the technology coverage into modules and the managerial material into chapters. In response to feedback from both users and non-users, the chapters have been slightly reorganised to incorporate increased coverage of E-Commerce and E-Business (now a full chapter 5). Pedagogical features have been retained but fine-tuned and the vibrant design has been toned down to reflect fewer features on a page.
