3Basic overview - not a graduate-level text
By Lezlie L. Ramsey
If you have little experience working in or with information technology, then this is a good, basic overview. However, it's being used as an MBA text and for readers who have experience it is painfully basic and completely overlooks the possibility of an audience with experience. The saving grace to it are the case studies.

5Easy to read and understand
By Wanda Rules
I would not describe myself as a "geek" or a "tech expert", and found the Management Information book very easy to informative without being boring. The information is presented in easy to read language and definitions, along with good graphs and side stories which support the facts presented.

With all the changes occuring daily in the IT world, I find the book relevant to what is happening in my company and with small businesses in my community. I definitely recommend the book for anyone trying to understand how technology works to improve today's business results.
