This one of the most comprehensive books about import / export, but it comes only in a pocket book size. It covers from A-to-Z of the import / export procedures, including other related issues like Financing, Distribution and U.S. Customs requirments. It also details role & responsibilities of each party involved. This book focuses primarily on the U.S., but it is also good for importer / exporter in other countries. Highly recommended. It is not only excellent for students or new comers in the import / export areana, but it is also a good desk reference guide.
