Business: The Ultimate Resource represents a massively ambitious project. When I was first asked to contribute to the project, I was concerned that such a huge undertaking would not have enough detail for the wide range of topics within it. I was wrong. With skilful editing, organization and focus I think that this may the the most useful business reference books ever published. A great range of authorities in a single spot will guarantee its place in my library for years to come.
