But it should start with this work, as the theme of the business ideas could not be better intertwined with the subject of our portal. Won’t stretch entry, but it is better to move on to the review.
A few words about the publication
When you have in your hands is a book, it is simply impossible not to say about her performance. The quality of this product at the highest level. The book is heavy (over a kilo), large, it’s very nice to hold in hands. It is in the hands, as it is really very massive. Externally cover is simply gorgeous but even nicer is it to the touch. Expensive fabric Burgundy color combined with the silver embossed letters looks very good. And all this magnificence is additionally covered with a dust cover that protects the book and gives it a more modern look.
Everything inside is just as beautiful as the outside. White thick paper, large, readable fonts, great breakdown of the material into chapters and paragraphs, sub-headings, black-and-white photo high quality — all this makes the reading process comfortable and interesting. The book “Business ideas that changed the world” will not get bored to all lovers of history, inventions, discoveries and great ideas. The only negative (which is both a plus) edition is very heavy. To keep the open book in his hands in the air for a long time is simply unrealistic. You need to be a very strong man.

What would I like from books?
This series can be continued indefinitely. For example, it would be very interesting to read the backstory of this publication.
