This book was chosen by my professor because she felt it was the best one out there. However, I found the content hard to understand. The writers were very technical in their jargon and for someone new to procurement, it was difficult to understand at times what their point was. Also, the use of "as to" is used very frequently in the book and I found the writing style to be annoying. Many times I would read a paragraph only to get to the end and have to read it again because I had no idea what concept I was supposed to be understanding. I did walk away with a general knowledge of procurement after this book, but it did not come easily. Maybe it is the subject, but this was extremely boring.
I have read the the eleventh edition in chinese version. It describes the purchasing issues professinally. But unfortunately the writer can not give the analysising method for each case of each chapeter.
