Tosan Alimi has done great justice at dissecting the complexities involved in the value chain aspect of distributive trade with this highly seminal book. I have read this book about three times and each time a new wave of innovative idea comes to me like a “Eureka Moment”. In addition to this, she has also made it very simple to read, navigate through and cross reference – Tunde A.
Save yourself the pain of learning from experience especially if you have no actual operational knowledge of the business. Get your copy of the book and gain insider knowledge on the business before you commit to it.
This book is indeed a worthy seed investment for you and your business.
It’s a great business idea for someone looking for an opportunity of self employment. Going into the business of sub distribution is made easy for me as I know the skills expected of me and the type of relationship I am to manage. This really is fascinating for me. I look forward to getting other books by Tosan Alimi – Dorcas Ediare
