Business law is an extensive field that encompasses many specialized areas of practice, so we thought a list comprised mainly of general overviews as well as a few functional titles (Employment Law for Business, International Business Law and The Entrepreneur's Guide to Law and Strategy) would be the most beneficial to readers. We prioritized volumes written by highly educated authorities and professors in the field, as well as selections that used thoughtful pedagogy and visuals. We also ensured that all our choices encourage active participation and critical thinking, as this is a discipline that cannot be practiced passively. Included The Curse of Bigness for those who want to read something niche, shorter, and less formatted than traditional textbooks. Placed Introduction to Business Law at the top spot since it should satisfy many needs, is easy to understand, simple to navigate, and fosters the line of logical thinking that is pertinent to understanding and applying the law.
