    Economic issues are active in our lives every day. However, when the subject of economics comes up in conversation or on the news, we can find ourselves longing for a more sophisticated understanding of the fundamentals of economics. These 36 lectures will help you think about and discuss economic issues that affect you and the nation every day-interest rates, unemployment, personal investing, budget deficits, globalization, and many more-with a greater level of knowledge and sophistication.

    Without knowing idioms, it's impossible to fully integrate into the business world. Native English speakers use idioms and phrasal verbs in their daily vocabulary to express their opinions on important matters - and so will you after learning these 99 essential phrases. This book features only the most commonly used idioms within a workplace setting and includes FIVE real-world example sentences for each of them.

    What would have made 99 Essential Business Idioms and Phrasal Verbs better?

    This audio book makes me very sleepy. Not recommended while driving.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Zhanna Hamilton again?

    Maybe. If I can not sleep at night. This audiobook is better than lullaby.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator seems sleepy too. Perhaps a little more enthusiastic narrator that not only reads but feels every word. Need to give life in every examples.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes. Good to listen to people who got insomnia.
