    This book is a masterpiece of layout. Seriously. An entire book Tetrised out of info graphics and sidebars. When I first opened the book to a couple of random pages I wasn't sure I would even know how to read it. But when I started at the beginning I found I had no trouble following it at all. In fact, this approach worked really well for me. The book is much more information-dense than I expected from looking at it. The "chunking" of the content encouraged me to stop and think about each This book is a masterpiece of layout. Seriously. An entire book Tetrised out of info graphics and sidebars.

In fact, this approach worked really well for me. The book is much more information-dense than I expected from looking at it. The "chunking" of the content encouraged me to stop and think about each section after reading it. The book is especially applicable for people who want to start and/or grow a business. It is like a mini-MBA, with all the basics. It covers everything from why some business ideas work and others don't to business financing, to leadership, to marketing & selling, to producing. A perfect graduation gift for a high school or college student who dreams of starting his or her own business.

(Similar to assigning baseless titles for psychological status then actual impact). This will be done to protect the World Economies. Also, the future will become more autocratic. Advanced AI will be capable of predicting the probable future and life will become a scripted role like in a mmorpg. Designed personal/professional paths will be the social safety net and creativity will be protected with rationality.

    This book was informative and interesting. It very effectively breaks down large concepts. It will begin by introducing the topic by its name, then explaining aspects of it, then the reasoning behind it, and finally it will leave you with an example of either wise or poor real-life application of it. Through this, I was able to understand concepts that seemed abstract at first. For example, "working with a vision" is an abstract concept, but through the sub-categories of learning from failures, This book was informative and interesting.

Through this, I was able to understand concepts that seemed abstract at first. For example, "working with a vision" is an abstract concept, but through the sub-categories of learning from failures, leading the market, protecting the core business, dealing with crisis, and more, I was able to grasp the idea. Although I am not 100% certain that I will pursue a career in business, I had enough interest in the topic to read this book and have been able to foster my curiosity in this field.

    Although it took me almost 2 months to get through, this was an informative and interesting book and introduction to business. I'll forget most of it but I learned a lot. Particularly I liked the "kaizen" system (Japan has a lot of good ideas)! I usually comment on how I don't like the format (since I'm reading many books from this series) but in this book it actually worked quite well. The glossary and directory at the back were also good additions; the glossary was especially handy (if you were Although it took me almost 2 months to get through, this was an informative and interesting book and introduction to business.

    I gave it a try, but reading about business is not my thing. That said, I feel like I did learn something. That was the goal. I think if anyone wants an overview of business concepts while getting examples of these things put into practice, this is a good book. I would say 4.5 stars for execution of the point, 3 for my interest level.

    This is one of best business books that you can read. It encapsulates a lot of business, management and leadership concepts in a concise dosage. You do not want to read tons of books in order to grab essence of management. The flow of the book is nice and I would recommend it for readers interested in management.

    First off, this is a textbook, so it was pretty densely packed with information. That being said, I found it really enjoyable to read (in short bursts) and a solid overview of how businesses work with anecdotes and historical examples. I was looking for a book to read to fill in some gaps of the basics and I believe this did the job quite well.

    Just like it says on the tin - easy to understand explanations and images. Covers key business principles. I found it a quick and user friendly refresher of stuff I covered in business school some years ago.

    "Sydney Opera House is a dramatic example of what can go wrong when projects are not properly planned and managed. When the world famous performing arts center was opened in 1973, it was ten years late, and had cost 14 times more than its original budget. For example, the podium columns that were initially used proved to be too weak to support the roof.Unfortunately for Jorn Utzon, it was initially his design that was unfairly blamed for the delays and cost overruns, rather than poor project "Sydney Opera House is a dramatic example of what can go wrong when projects are not properly planned and managed.

"Is money the motivator (of creativity)? Most find the answer is "no". Virgin Atlantic airline, for example, is not known as one of the highest payers, but is regarded as a great place to work" Lack of story line, it took me around two weeks to finish the first two pages. Seems like it needs more than just cartoony looks to make the topic inviting. Business, read by person outside business is actually fun! As a customer I get some background story about brands, products in the making. In the other hand, as an employee I could see what some employers do wrong with their company tactics. I found that team bonding needs time (in fact, 5 phase) to actually reach a productive cycle, so constant team rotation between projects to reach man-hour efficiency isn't actually good (my personal experience). Business by the book portrayed as very ethical but not so much in real life. For instance, I'd say rather than finding a more economical way to cut production cost, mostly companies just take shortcut by buying lower quality raw material, or subcontracting to country with lower labour wages (like my country- Indonesia). Take scandal about fashion factory in Bangladesh few years ago. But of course in this book they show that it is possible to cut production cost by systematically improve the process, even by taking ideas from factory worker. Japanese has succeed with this strategy (kaizen) - they don't 'pay' ideas from workers with bonuses, promising that the relationship of company and employee is mutual, and as the effect of that they refrain of laying-off employee when the company have difficulties financially (unlike many US company) . I guess it has been a joyful reading. When I reach the end, I ask myself how I could use the information here, seems like business here is narrowly portrayed with complex-structured companies only. How small businesses have the same privileges to adopt the material here without the ability to differenciate their talents to many divisions, like designated R&D, marketing and sales, finance and accounting? But in the end, I guess it is proven that it is one of my favorite books to read. The feeling of reading it reminds me of Reader Digest or NatGeo magz, enriching.

    This book is fantastic, it goes over a lot of really fantastic concepts very simply. At times they don't seem as important because they are so simple, but if you come into the book understanding how important everything in the book is, it's extremely helpful!

    "The Business Book" by DK Publishing is likely the worst of the series but the structure of it allows for some decent passive reading. Some finance is covered but most of the book is organizational theory (management) lessons told through the experiences of famous business people or corporations. For the most part, management theory is common sense dressed up as insight through anecdote and stories, and that is much of what this is. Having said that, the reminder is good.

    Great business journey through all business themes one needs. Much more better overview than standard textbook. Easily explained with an outstanding illustration, graphs and diagrams. Can't wait for another book from this amazing edition of educational books. Helpful recommendations for books to every chapter included.
