"NOTE: This ISBN is a standalone book and doesn't include an access code."
The seventh edition of Management: A Practical Introduction by Kinicki/Williams―a concepts book for the introductory course in management-uses a wealth of instructor feedback to identify which features from prior editions worked best and which should be improved and expanded. By blending Angelo’s scholarship, teaching, and management-consulting experience with Brian’s writing and publishing background, we have again tried to create a research-based yet highly readable, practical, and motivational text.
The primary goal is simple to state but hard to execute: to make learning Principles of Management as easy, effective, and efficient as possible. Accordingly, the book integrates writing, illustration, design, and magazine-like layout in a program of learning that appeals to the visual sensibilities and respects the time constraints and different learning styles of today’s students. It is the hope that this product will make a difference in the lives of students, to produce a product that students will enjoy reading, and that will provide them with practical benefits.

Just another textbook.
While loose-leaf textbooks are not ideal, that is how this particular textbook is sold everywhere I looked. It arrived just as expected & in wrapping. The loose-leaf pages are already hole punched so I put it all in a binder. I'm not sure why people are surprised by this and giving negative reviews when it is stated in the heading.

A lot of people were disappointed because because you get a bunch a pages
READ BEFORE BUYING! A lot of people were disappointed because because you get a bunch a pages... that could fall apart because of no binding. You will have to buy a 2 inch folder for it. It's a textbook. Since I am not a business/management major... it is was it is. The text information were clear and easy to understand. What I loved about this book is that the pages are loose... it is a ~2 inch think book, so I loved the fact that I could take only the chapters I need out, put it in a smaller folder and take it to go. If you want to sell it again, just make sure you keep the front and back covers... all pages, and keep it in good condition.
