issues during that time.

- This book was written
as a manual on how to get into marketing your business, and how
you should go about entering the business world if that is what
you are planning on doing. It gave a lot of information about various
business subjects. This book should be considered valid as it was
published as a marketing handbook, and so would need to include
relevant information. It also was given a good review by Newsweek.

looked at as it was developed for teachers and so it includes a
large amount of detailed information about monopolies that would
be needed to teach kids about them. This should be considered valid
as it was written with teaching in mind, so the information would
thus most likely need to be correct.
