And in business, where important judgments, decisions, and opportunities ride on timely access to crucial information, the irony becomes painful. Now, with the Directory of Business Information, businesspeople can access the vital information they need quickly and directly.
Written by business journalist Lawrence Rasie, this valuable guide describes thousands of sources of information—and then links them directly to business databanks. It includes a framework of information on major industries and companies to help you narrow your search to the specific data you need. It also provides a network of sources for business research in any part of the country—without leaving your home, office, or school.
