Bizworld: The Complete Business Awareness Guide (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.143

Biz World: The Complete Business Awareness Guide is a one-stop guide that is filled with facts and trivia about companies, brands and businesses both in India and across the world.

Summary Of The Book

Biz World: The Complete Business Awareness Guide has facts about all the major global and Indian companies across business sectors, organized in an easy to read manner. It is extremely useful for quizzers, students appearing for competitive exams and just about anyone who wishes to satiate their curiosity about businesses that range from airlines to automobiles, and wish to learn more about magazine covers and scams.

Biz World: The Complete Business Awareness Guide is separated into four sections, Facts, Etymologies, Questions and Tables. Forming a major part of the book, the Facts section extensively covers information about major Indian and global organizations. Each of the companies listed here contain factual information such as its founders, current management, headquarters and additional trivia. Added to this, is that each of the listed companies has further information with regard to its brands, taglines and its brand ambassadors.

The Etymologies sections give the readers the history behind the origin of the names of some of the well-known companies in the world and they are sure to be surprised by some fascinating revelations. The third part of the book has hundreds of questions and answers that are bound to whet the appetite of any avid quizzer. The last section of the book has a collection of miscellaneous facts presented to the reader in a tabular format. It also contains a list of trademarks that have gone onto become generic names. For instance “Thermos”, which was a trade name for a vacuum flask, over a period of time, evolved into a general term.

Reconnecting with Handa sir

I found this book in the Mumbai airport while I was waiting for my flight to Bangalore. When I read the foreword by Rajiv Makhni I thought it might be just one more marketing gimmick of his. However, when I finished reading the book, I realized how wrong I was.

Part 1 (Facts) is okay. What I liked about this section was the trivia about the various companies. Wouldn't want this review to have spoilers. Hence wouldn't paraphrase much.

Part 2 (Etymologies) is what I liked the most. Knowledge of this part makes for good 'adda' and being a Bong, its a must for me. One may find all the inform...

Part 1 (Facts) is okay. What I liked about this section was the trivia about the various companies. Wouldn't want this review to have spoilers. Hence wouldn't paraphrase much.

Part 2 (Etymologies) is what I liked the most. Knowledge of this part makes for good 'adda' and being a Bong, its a must for me. One may find all the information present in this part in the WORLD WIDE WEB... but not in such a condensed, easy-to-refer manner.

Part 3 (Quiz) is what I used to engage with my office colleagues when we didn't have much to do in office (post 4 pm on Fridays). They liked it a lot

Part 4 didn't grab my attention except for the 'Collective Names' section

All in all, a must read for someone interested in participating in a business quiz. Even otherwise, to be worldly wise, this book helps.

Full of errors... DONT BUY

I just started with the multiple choice questions and found out 2 major blunders in first 75 questions itself.... i was quite sure that the answers given were wrong and i confirmed it on google as well... those who have the book can have a look at pg 227 Q 15 ... which was the first bank to set up an ATM in India... the answer given in the book is option c SBI... whereas the correct answer is option D HSBC.... !!!! such a shame

then there is another error at page 234 Q 24 ... which of the following is not a parle product? ... now the options they have given is A Bisleri B Real Juice......

then there is another error at page 234 Q 24 ... which of the following is not a parle product? ... now the options they have given is A Bisleri B Real Juice... the answer is given as B .. but even bisleri doesnt belong to parle .. it belongs to UNILEVER... whereas BAILEY is what they should have written ..( which is off course parle's product)

If i can find 2 mistakes Within 1 hour of opening to read it ... i am sure there will be many more ..

i recommend not to buy this book at all ...
instead look for saurabh aggarwal's book 'business quiz book'

Disappointed

First of all i think the publishers should reconsider the value of the words "national best seller".I mean how can a book be national best seller which has wrongly updated names of places,headquarters,CEOs and yet claims to be a national bestseller?The book says it has been revised and updated as of 2012.but the name of the CEOs those who had been appointed in the year 2010 or so have not been updated.Every 3 out 5 five CEO names are wrong.I suggest don't even think about buying this book.Rs 137 is not a big amount but reading this book will deteriorate your knowledge rather than...

If you want just a book, don't buy this- But if you want KNOWLEDGE , JUST GO for it......!!!!!

If you want a book, don't buy this- But if you want KNOWLEDGE , JUST GO for it, don't even wait and think......!!!!!

This is the best you can get. Each page is full of vital knowledge, easy to understand in simple language, explained in points, in systematic way.

Buy this book you wont regret it, you will appreciate yourself, for your choice.

Hats-off to the authors, waiting more from their side. Best of luck...!!

Good luck,

Happy Reading,

Yours,
