Great book on IO. Outdated, but lots of empirical evidence.

I first used the second edition of this book as a young PhD student in strategic management in 1983. Until then, I never knew there was a field of study called 'industrial organization'. This book was, and remains, THE best IO (a.k.a. 'industrial economics') book in print. My only regret is that the authors have not updated it since the third edition in 1990. It would be a huge service to the disciplines of both IO and strategic management if they would update it.

Consultants and also academics in strategic management will value this book for its lucid explanations of IO's theoretical underpinnings and its governing concepts. Non-academics will also appreciate its readability and accessibility. I have nine other IO textbooks--by Waldman & Jensen; Tremblay & Tremblay; Cabral: Carlton & Peitz; Belleflamme & Perloff; Martin; Shughart; Ferguson & Ferguson; and, of course, Joan Woodward (author of the very first IO textbook, I believe). But Scherer & Ross's 3rd edition of 'Industrial Market Structure and Economic Performance' is the creme de la creme and remains in a class by itself, even being long in the tooth.

It's just the best.

This is a book about industry structure (think Porter's five forces). The third edition is from 1990, but that is only a slight modification of the 1980 edition. So the book is out of date. When I studied for my first degree I was told that Michael Porter used the material in this book and reversed engineered the findings. In economics and antitrust, perfect competition is ideal. In Porter's world imperfect competition is the ideal, because that makes companies more profitable. The book was written before the field of industrial organization was taken over by the game theoreticians in the 80s. When that takeover happened, many academics stopped doing empirical research. The game theoretic approach has not yielded much benefit for practical use in strategic management so that is really a sad development. The type of industry analysis featured in this book has also gone out of fashion in business school community. If you are interested in where Michael Porter got many of his ideas from, I think this book is very valuable. And even if the examples are out of date, a lot of the material is off course still valid.

an classic, very good to understand the principals. However, normally speaking one must understand Calculus and differential equations in order to understand this book.
This prerequisite should not be an barrier to anyone with a science and engineering background, but may very likely be a big trouble to other readers.
