From the Book Description:
David T. Bourgeois wrote:This book is written as an introductory text, meant for those with little or no experience with computers or information systems. While sometimes the descriptions can get a little bit technical, every effort has been made to convey the information essential to understanding a topic while not getting bogged down in detailed terminology or esoteric discussions.

The book is divided into three sections:

Part 1: What is an information system? This section covers the technical components, such as hardware, software, networks, and security.
Part 2: Information systems for strategic advantage. This section of the book relates how information systems are used in organizations and how they can be deployed to improve business.
Part 3: Information systems beyond the organization. Here you will find details on how information systems have affected our society on a larger scale. Topics covered include globalization, intellectual privacy, and future trends.
