This book is a great resource for those wanting to learn more about the world of business. It is very well written and the major concepts and definitions are clearly highlighted in boxes in the page's margins. Additionally, the book is organized very well with well-defined sections and topics.

For those who learn better in a "school-like setting" the book even includes online quizzes to see how well you understand the material. The pace of the book is appropriate as well, with the authors starting out with very simple concepts and working towards more complicated concepts near the end of the book. The numerous images are especially impressive with easy to understand and follow captions.

Keep in mind that everything is presented as though you have no background knowledge of business (kind of like an introductory textbook for business students). For those that fall under that category (like myself) this is an invaluable resource. For those more experienced in the field of business you are probably better off looking elsewhere (though the information presented in later chapters may prove useful to you as well).
