    Description

    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.

    Must have for a Biz Quizzer

    This book is a must have for all Biz Quizzers. It starts from the very basics and moves on. Read someone's review that it's a Wikipedia Rip-off; dude, this is a book of trivia, you should expect "facts" here; not Fiction.

    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...
