From Booklist:

Business is fascinating, made even more so by the 360-degree view offered here on leadership, history, marketing, manufacturing, and all the other disciplines that comprise modern-day corporations. The book is not exactly an MBA in 352 pages, but DK editors do a good job in presenting the essentials. What makes this less of a textbook and more of an intriguing read is the colloquial language, the shortness of the sections, the myriad illustrations, and the factoids and sidebars. Topics include everything a business student should know, such as building a business, positioning, growth plans, the people side, financials, and operations. Headlines spell out such issues as Why Takeovers Disappoint to Play by the Rules. Quotes and biographies add color, Warren Buffet is cited (The line separating investment and speculation is never bright and clear), and Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn is profiled. --Barbara Jacobs

Review:

"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
