In Search of the Best International Business Books
We received an e-mail from a regular reader says "Now I'm in charge of buying and contract manufacturing of key raw materials but I'm quite new to this area. Can you recommend a good book or textbook about international business?"

In the past, we made many book lists that get attention from both authors and publishers. We also have many international business books in our own library. In order to provide a good recommendation, we conduct a short survey of books/textbooks about international business and find that they are categorized as below,

- General international business
- Global marketing
- International economics
- International finance
- International trade law
- Export and import

Data Collection
We come up with a data collection plan as below,

- We visit the sites of leading MBA programs in international business around the world and check out which international business books are recommended. 

- After that, we compile a list of books and textbook written by leading book authors and researchers in international business which are available on Amazon.com. 

- Moreover, we take a look at leading international business textbooks in our library and find out what are some books recommended in “Further Reading Section”. 

- Then, we create a big list of international business books and try to find out if some of them got strong endorsements by business leaders such as Chief Executive Officer, President, Chairman and so on.

In short, we collect data and evaluate each book objectively. Only books mentioned on reading lists of top MBA programs are included. We use reader's feedback and endorsement from top business leaders for evaluation.
