Amazon.com Review

Many magazines publish lists, ranking best and worst and most improved, but Forbes alone can claim its readership is on the list. Each year, the magazine names the richest people and the biggest companies, and those very folks subscribe to this nervy and sly business pub. Forbes covers global business stories with insight, solid sourcing, and the sort of groupie zeal usually reserved for fanzines. No merger, new ad campaign, or lawsuit goes unnoticed and stories always focus on the movers who are shaking things up. Read Forbes to make sense of today's volatile market--or just for the sheer pleasure of reading good reporting. --Edith Sorenson

2.0 out of 5 stars Look at the dates on the really positive reviews June 8, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Forbes ain't what it used to be. I read it a long time ago and recently accepted a $12/year subscription to get it again. Boy, was I disappointed. It was the same stuff, month after month, talking about how rich rich people were. No insights, no observations, no analysis, lots of ads.

Before you subscribe try to get your hands on a current issue and see if it is what you want it to be.

BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews can take the place of first-hand experiences that are lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and work hard to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and if there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite of the three major business mags July 20, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I am a voracious reader of business periodicals. I subscribe to and read four business magazines and three financial newspapers on a regular basis. Between Forbes, Fortune and BusinessWeek, I always look most forward to receiving my next issue of Forbes. Why? Several reasons:
- The articles are generally shorter and more "to the point" than Fortune. Forbes is also not as beholden as BusinessWeek is to cover the hot news stories.
- This magazine is the best of the three for discovering new investment ideas and it is generally more investor focused than either Fortune or BW.
- The editorials throughout the magazine are usually thought-provoking and I guarantee you will develop your own favorite columnists whom you will look forward to reading in each issue
- Forbes has a politically conservative and pro-business slant (with Steve Forbes as Editor-in-Chief, that should be no surprise).
- Forbes offers two supplemental issues, which are quarterly. Forbes ASAP is entirely focused on technology and many articles are actually thought pieces written by influential executives, investors, and technology visionaries. Forbes FYI features lighter articles which are thematically aimed at the upper class. You will probably find some of the stories (and the ads) irrelevant to your life (we're not all millionaires yet, are we?). But it's an amusing magazine and it's a good break for me from the stream of more business-oriented stuff I read.
I do enjoy all three of the major business magazines I mentioned. But if you made me drop two of them, I'd keep Forbes. The reasonable price is just icing on the cake and gives you no excuse not to try it out. I bet you'll be hooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Big Three December 19, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If someone put a gun to my head and told me I had to choose between Forbes, Fortune and BusinessWeek, I'd go with Forbes. The articles seem crisper to me, and they have an attitude about them. You never have any doubt about where Forbes stands on something.
I also like the fact that they don't seem beholden to the news cycle. Some of their best stories come from digging up up the story you *don't* see everywhere else. If you want day-to-day news, you can always turn to daily sources like the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, then use Forbes to get your 'Fact and Comment' (the name of Steve Forbes' bi-weekly contribution, by the way).
In fact, the beginning of the magazine alone is worth the subscription price:
- 'Flashback' follows up on previus stories that have appeared in Forbes. Yes, they'll gloat if they got the story right, but more importantly they'll take 40 lashes if they called it wrong.
- 'Fact and Comment' by Steve Forbes is always a good read...maybe it was better in the days of Clinton; Forbes differences with Bush are not as sharp of course, but terrorism and tax cuts are red meat subjects for him.
- The 'Current Events' column in a pleasure to read. You get rotating columns by Lee Kuan Yew, Paul Johnson, Ernesto Zedillo and Caspar Weinberger. Wow, talk about a world-class crew.
- Most underrated part of the magazine - Rich Karlgaard's column. Rich is the Publisher of Forbes, and his column is called 'Digital Rules' It's excellent writing. Always provocative and timely.
A subscription to Forbes would make a great gift to anyone interested in business. It's a bargain at this price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it used to be November 14, 2003
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
i've been a Forbes reader for more than 20 years. They used to be the best; especially in exposing crooks. but in the last two or three years, they have started mixing political content into the news pages. Their columnists are interesting and have every right to express an opinion - and that's where i expect to find the opinions. but news articles are tending to look more like product placements, written to support a certain point of view instead of to tell both sides of a story impartially. It has becoome the moral equivalent of Fox for business. Fine if you want to read politics, but not where you go for the whole story.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Not in the Forbes 400, Yet . . . September 28, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I've been a Forbes subscriber for years. I scan each page of every issue and read many of the articles and columns--something I don't do with most of the other magazines I receive. You don't have to be Bill Gates or Warren Buffet to find information that will help you run your business or manage your investments. The articles are well-written and to the point, and the magazine is a pleasure to read. Several regular columns offer insight and analysis unlike I've found anywhere else.
If you want to know what is really going on in business, Forbes is the magazine to read. Subscribers also get supplemental publications, including the Best of the Web and FYI. FYI is a lifestyle magazine and, well, it's not my lifestyle. But articles by contributors such as P.J. O'Rourke and editor Christopher Buckley are a delight.
Even though I'm not on the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest people, if I keep reading and following their advice, maybe I'll get there!
