Summary:  (Submitted by Lee Schwartz)

           

Someone had to write it; and that’s why we did.  Compiled by international consultant and trainer Daniel Feiman, THE Book on Business from A to Z; The 260 Most Important Answers You Need to Know contains the best wisdom of 21 experts in the key knowledge areas that business owners struggle with daily.

 

THE Book on Business from A to Z is the result of trying to constantly answer client questions across a vast range of business topics.  Frequently when we (the co-authors) had conversations between ourselves about some of our most challenging engagements, we realized that we had one thing in common - clients were regularly asking questions about many areas beyond our individual areas of expertise.  We did our individual best to answer them and/or put the clients in touch with other experts who could.

 

However, we wanted to be able to go beyond this and to provide an ongoing resource for those questions that arise when we are not in front of our clients.  For our past, present and future clients.  The result is THE Book on Business from A to Z; The 260 Most Important Answers You Need to Know.  This book covers 26 of the most important business topics in the world today.  Although each chapter is worthy of a complete book on its own, we have condensed them down to the 10 most important questions, and their answers, we have been asked for each subject area.

"

Here's what's being said: 

 

"Finally!  An easy-to-read guide on 26 important business topics, giving readers access to experts to answer key questions to help grow a business from  A to Z.  The information is highly practical and gets to the essential questions that businesses have to deal with on a daily basis.”

 

“I feel this book is an essential part of any new manager’s or existing business leader’s library.”

 

“Some of the best advice a businessperson could get from some of the best consultants in the business.”

 

“The information provided in this book is easy to read and understand.  THE Book on  . . . Business from A to Z contains valuable answers to questions many small business owners ask.”

 

“This book’s unique format delivers a proactial approach to answering the 10 most important questions in each of the chapters.  This provides an expansive ready-made guide to be turned inward for thought, discussion and action.”
