Review: This book is perfect for all those who want to comprehend Business Analysis. The book is not written in text book form so it is easy to understand. It can be called as handbook of business management and very helpful. The content has innovations and interesting facts and interviews. The book has exciting divisions to set an object with the readers. I appreciate the efforts of authors who have successfully addressed various characteristics of BA vocation which is highly creditable. I enjoyed reading the cases and experiments of Burger Queen and Lego. The exercises are interesting to work. On the whole it was a good read.
