Some of my favorite books on business

Business is not as complicated as one would first think. At the same time there is a vocabulary and a process to breaking down problems that is valuable and important to learn. Below are some books that I feel are good to teach yourself the basics of business.

 

Lemonade Stand Accounting

Like it or not accounting is the language of business. Again it’s not as complicated as you think and if you got B’s in high school math you will be able to understand accounting pretty well after reading this book.

I know it’s cliché but it’s a good book no matter what you’re doing.

    Thank you for these suggestions. I have just finished reading Business Storytelling for Dummies from Karen Dietz and Lori Silverman. I enjoy books in the ‘For Dummies’ series because they are often constructed in a simple, easy to read format and this one is no exception. I found it so helpful and informative with a lot of careful thought into each section. You can not underestimate the value of storytelling in business and if this is a new concept for you, as it was for me then this a fantastic read to start. http://www.juststoryit.com/
