    :

    Getting Down to Business is written in a lively and interesting style. It is packed with excellent recommendations and is a must-have for the adjunct faculty member teaching business courses. It’s one of the most comprehensive overall teaching handbooks for business faculty I’ve read thus far.

    Very Useful Book.

    I teach undergraduate business courses at a 4-year college and I bought this book. The writing is lively and engaging and the tips/suggestions were very helpful – particularly the chapter on business students and writing. I would recommend this book to instructors who teach undergraduate business courses and who are looking to improve their course delivery.
