Textbook Review – Introduction to Business



Are you considering a career in business? Maybe it’s time to prepare yourself, as the economy begins to recover and jobs return to the United States. Are you considering an MBA, or a degree in business? Do you see yourself as a business unit, or a retail store business manager in the future? If so, you may want to learn more about running a business, making money, and managing your employees.

Of course, it’s not all that easy, there’s more to it than that. However, it makes sense to start early, and maybe even consider some business curricula. If you don’t have time to go to school yet, here is a great book I would recommend. This is a textbook, and it’s available online. It’s a book I own in my personal library to refer to, even though I’m a retired franchisor, and maybe I could have written the book myself.



The reason I have this book is because I believe it is interesting to have an educational perspective on the subject and our business schools, and community colleges are educating future students who will pursue a business degree, and Then they will move to manpower. Is the name of the book

“Introduction to Business” Fourth Edition) Steven A. Egland, Les R. Dalby, James L. Bro, Robert A. Restau, Southwestern Educational Textbook Publishers, Cincinnati, OH, (2000), 677 pages, ISBN: 0538-69146-8.



This book is broken down into chapters or sections, which are called units. Each unit and subsequent chapters go into different aspects of the business, things you need to know. For example, Unit One talks about the economic environment, which is very important at the moment, because we leave the crisis in the business cycle until the period of inflation. Learn about business cycles, create statistical modeling and make the right financial decisions. Then there is a section or unit in business affairs, and a business and government regulation.

There are units for international business as well as small business management. You can also learn about business credit and financing as well as strategic investment strategies and risk management and return on investment. This is a very good book to make your education very easy, easy to read, well formatted, and already highlighted. If you are looking for a starter book on business introduction – this is definitely a book I would recommend to you, and as I said you can find it online.
