Reference for Business: Encyclopedia of Business, 2nd ed.

"The Encyclopedia of Small Business is a comprehensive and easily accessible reference source for entrepreneurs that demand practical information that can be applied to their own business. Small business owners can browse over the 600 articles that detail information about financial planning, market analysis, sales, business plans, tax planning, human resource issues and more.

"The Business Biographies are a superb tool for biographical information of industry leaders worldwide. We have over 600 in-depth essays that cover each individual's biographical information, career paths, achievements, leadership strategies and management styles.

"The Business Plans section is composed of actual business plans written by entrepreneurs in North America who are seeking financing for their business. This is a great resource for anybody needing examples on how to structure, compose, and write their own business plans.

"Finally, the Encyclopedia of American Industries is a comprehensive guide to industries in every realm of American business. We cover 459 manufacturing industries, and have over 500 essays about non-manufacturing and service industries."

The bad news about this source is that the latter three sections are quite dated, c. 2002.

The good news is that the articles are largely still general enough to be applicable. And the histories are still interesting, up to when they end.
