Business Information Resource Review

“A comprehensive directory of over 23,000 listings in 99 industries, this volume is a worthy addition to academic and large public libraries serving business researchers. Two new industries-Alternative Energy and E-Commerce-as well as indicators of companies’ social media presence could warrant replacement of older editions.”
