Summary

Business is big. Actually, it's often small and medium-sized too. But the point is that it matters - a lot. This book is designed to answer all those confusing questions that flit through your mind when you get to the business pages of the paper, and stop you from being embarrassed in job interviews.
It explains the things you really need to know about business, and will tell you:

What the point of business is
How what happens in the economy affects real businesses
What the law means for business
How to understand finance, accounting, shares, bonds, etc and other big numbers
How companies grow and why they merge (even though most mergers fail)
What HR departments actually do all day
Time management, motivation, leadership, communication skills, and all the other skills you'll need if you want to know what the view is like from the CEO's office
After listening to this book, you'll smile knowingly whenever the advantages of outsourcing, balanced scorecards, or Porter's 5 Ps come up in polite conversation.
