4Problem numbers are not the same as original 6E
By Trevor S
Chapter content seems to be the same, and the book binding is fine quality. The book problems themselves are the same as the original 6 edition, but the numbers are different. (for example, a 1000 dollar principle would be a 1500 dollar principle for the same problem for the international edition). If you don't need the problems to be the same, this is a good, cheaper alternative to the original 6 edition copy of this book.

3I have to mention the most annoying thing in this book
By Kevin Walsh
Not the easiest book to understand.

I have to mention the most annoying thing in this book:

Example problems often reference previous example problems. Thats normal. BUT this book builds on that to a stupid degree. I think the author was lazy and the editors didn't care. Those example problems are very hard to follow.

Example (numbers are not actual): problem 6.8 references problem 6.7, but 6.7 references problems 6.6 and doesnt have its own dataset.
