While I definitely recommend this book to other individuals in learning environments, I would recommend it to everybody who is in employment and/or in management positions. This is mainly because plagiarism might seem an academic-only issue, but the reality is that we can be faced with it in real life situations where it can result in financial losses and sufferings.
