Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Comprehensive summaries of the best business books now available to subscribers in a free app.
For today’s executives, sorting through thousands of business books and reading those that would benefit their own professional development would be time-consuming. As a solution, EBSCO offers Business Book Summaries (BBS), which provides concise, yet comprehensive summaries for the best business books available. By summarizing at least one leading business book every business day, BBS keeps users abreast of the latest in business intelligence and trends.
· A 100 word abstract of each book
· A comprehensive 6-8 page summary of each book
· Summaries and reviews for more than 1,300 of the top business books from the last 20 years, with new summaries added continuously
· Audio versions of the summaries, when available
· Option to save summaries for viewing and listening in offline mode
· Ability to browse by category, recently-added titles, or summaries with audio
To use the BBS app, access your Business Book Summaries account and click the link at the bottom of any page to email yourself a 6 month access key.
The description makes it seem that you will have easy access to biz book summaries but that is not the case. As far as I can tell you first need access to a library to get an auth key to acess anything other than what's available as a guest. I do not recommend this app unless you feel like being frustrated about not being able to get what it promises.
Not yet functional
Dear EBSCO - please fix this app. I have a subscription and could not access. All I get is a blank screen with a help button on it every time I open the app. The help button is just general FAQ and nothing to actually "help" anyone. Please fix the app and next time I suggest a bit more QA before launch... It's not like a company like EBSCO doesn't have the resources to make a decent app. Very disappointing!
So, basically after downloading the app, you need to open an authentication key link mailed to your official id, on your device. Further access is straightforward.
