Book Review by Robert
I’ve only gotten through about 1/4 of the book, and I’ve already learned a lot about business and many of its important topics. I’m a relative novice when it comes to business, so this may be a walk through the park for some pro’s or advanced readers. Illustrations are nice and helpful, and the style is clean. There are more than a couple typos throughout the book, but I’m not that critical of books anyways. The only thing I question about this book is its structure. As a novice, I wonder why some topics are brought up before others, and vise-versa. I can’t say this is a detriment to the book, just a personal curiosity.
“Business is fascinating, made even more so by the 360-degree view offered [in The Business Book] on leadership, history, marketing, manufacturing, and all the other disciplines that comprise modern-day corporations.” – Booklist
“[The Business Book] is definitely a title worth having in the collection.” – Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) Magazine
“More than a well-designed cheat sheet, The Business Book is a title that a young entrepreneur can dive into for valuable factoids to impress a potential investor, keeping the conversation going at a networking event or to simply fill in some knowledge gaps.” – Success.com
