I picked up this book after reading the previous one in the series designed for college students for my son who just entered college. I thought the college book was really useful, and I wasn't disappointed with this one. It is simply fantastic. I'm going to buy three more copies of it for my coworkers.

When a coworker gave me a copy of Business Decisions, I thought that there was no way that there would be anything useful for me in it. Boy how I was wrong! I honestly can't believe all of the useful information, lessons, and scenarios in this book that are applicable to my job. Business Decisions aren't only made by the top executives in a company - they're made by employees at all levels of a company. Little did I know that was the case. I definitely recommend this book for everyone.

I'm the CEO of a 60+ employee software company and I can't believe the usefulness of this book. I know that decision making is extremely important at all levels of a business, not just for myself or theother executives in the company, but for all of my employees. At all levels, my staff make decisions - both large and small - that affect the profitability and reputation of our company. Ensuring that better decisions happen at all levels of my business is crucial to me, which is why I'm planning on giving copies of this book to all employees throughout my company.

You know, I think I underestimated this book when I started to read it. Almost from the minute I picked it up, there were just so many tips that were useful for me to improve my decision making. I had never realized that there were so many ways to improve my decision making skills, but this book has shown me that there's no limit to how much I can make my decisions more effective. This book is great for anyone looking to make themselves a better place in their business.

Format: Hardcover
Very good resource. I had read Michael's previous book and expected the same good resources and timely advice. Michael lays out techniques and best practices in an easy to understand manner, with helpful advice. Timely discussion on how a lot of the big companies failed. Michael lays out good advice on making business decisions designed to keep a company out of major failure. Wish some of the major business had read before the collapse.
