Classic management reference,
By A Customer
This review is from: "Financial Times" Handbook of Management (Hardcover)
The advertising for the first edition of this went something like "You're in the lift with your MD - 33 floors, 60 seconds - what are you going to say?" Pretty good summary of what makes this book so essential really - business knowledge on tap (pretty fast lift too). It's a collection of articles from the great and the good of the business world touching on every issue you're likely to encounter in a modern business environment. I bought it when I started my MBA and found the information really sharp. Obviously you're not going to be an expert on marketing or strategy after reading it, but you'll find you're pretty clued-up on most subjects. If you want a reference to kick-start your business knowledge or you're thinking of doing the business school thing, get hold of this.
