Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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

Voya Reviews, April 2014 (Vol. 36, No. 1) - Suanne Roush
DK has released another title in the Big Ideas Simply Explained series. This newest title is a comprehensive coverage of business, addressing such topics as money management, leadership and human resources, starting and growing a business, marketing, production, and operations. Discussed is not only what has worked for successful businesses but also what has not worked, and why being the first with an idea is not always the best. In short chapters, chunking the information, DK continues what it does best: covering large amounts of information in easy-to-understand language. This is a more comprehensive volume than the highly colorful, short volumes for which DK is known. The clip art is clear, and context chronology windows open each section. The photographs are highly pixelated, and it is hoped that the finished edition will have clearer ones, perhaps in color. This title will be popular with adults in public libraries and may be of use in high schools with courses in business entrepreneurship or economics. It is definitely a title worth having in the collection. Reviewer: Suanne Roush; Ages 17 to Adult.
