Business - The Ultimate Resource; Edited by Daniel Goleman et al; Bloomsbury pounds 40.00.
The advent of the internet should have meant that there was no need to compile a 2,172-page, 3.6kg resource of all things businesslike. But the internet doesn't allow for the nuances of human nature in the way that scrambling through a big book does. That makes Business - The Ultimate Resource a useful and powerful tool.
A few years ago, 'MBA in a week' books were topping the US business books charts. The Ultimate Resource is much more than that. It is a business management encyclopaedia. Think of any business concept or management guru and it's sure to be included: from Sun Tzu's Art of War to The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith, from John Adair to Frank W Woolworth. It would be hard to find any top business names and topics missing.
