How Business Works by Alexandra Black

A Rapid Review

HowBusinessWorksA Graphic Guide to Business Success

Publisher: DK Publishing | 352 pages | April 2015
Format: Hardcover | Rating: 5 stars

Understand the sometimes-confusing business world with How Business Works, a user-friendly guide to understanding business jargon and corporate structure. Whether you’re looking to get ahead at work, want to start your own business, or just want to understand the business world better, How Business Works is a comprehensive guide that makes even difficult business concepts easy to understand.

DK has designed a basic business book that is both interesting and fun to read. This is the exact opposite of the boring text books that I remember from my business classes.

Business principles are broken down into an easy to understand format using charts, illustrations, infographics, and concise explanations. Pages are filled with interesting facts and statistics which are arranged in side bars, boxes, and headings. Every page is in full-color and brightly illustrated. This format makes it much easier to grasp a concept and is perfect for the visual learner.

The book is divided into four main sections—a general overview of how companies work, finance, sales and marketing, and operations and production—along with many subsections plus a handy index at the end for easy reference.

Whether one is just starting out in the business world, is in need of an easy to understand reference book, or just wants to know more about how things work, this book is a great choice to have on your shelf.
