" Modern Information Systems for Managers is an impressive attempt to address and synthesize technical, organizational, legal-ethical, and strategic aspects of the information systems field. It is broad in scope and written for information systems' students, users, and management-level decision-makers...the manual-style organization of the book, its list of key terms and concepts, its numerous pro and con comparison tables, and its index make it a good more-than-reference handbook for the information systems personnel in any organization."
