I compiled this list using Amazon’s “Books” category. From there, I selected “Business & Money.” I then chose the”Processes & Infrastructure” sub-category and chosen”E-commerce.” I then handpicked titles from this category, based on customer evaluations and terms of ecommerce. Moreover, I selected a couple of titles from the”Small Business & Entrepreneurship” sub-category.
