Business Techniques in Troubled Times by Thomas Gray is an outstanding tool for small business owners everywhere. This detailed book provides tools, techniques, and strategies for every aspect of a small business. Interestingly the title is a little misleading! The information in this book is valuable regardless of the economic times, in my opinion.
One of the things I found most valuable is the way the book is structured. A small business owner can jump to a section where they are experiencing issues that need resolution, or they can read straight through.
In addition, there is real content in this book. It isn't a philosophical diatribe about the theory of small business success. It provides tactical, specific ideas for fixing and improving processes and policies. There's even a section about family businesses! I highly recommend this book to every small business owner who is ready to evaluate and adjust to improve their results.
