At a time when Uzbekistan is carrying out large-scale economic reforms, this is a really relevant book. It explains economic principles in a simple way so that everyone can understand real events quickly and easily.

As a former career coach and human resources lecturer, I can recommend this book to anyone who has doubts about their professional development plan and ambitions: it’s fun to read, and easy to apply in practice!

Gurgen Aslanyan
President, Armenian Economic Association
