The lexicon itself is structured very much like a traditional dictionary, including syllabification for more accurate pronunciation, parts of speech, business field labels, brief definitions, and numerous cites of usage from the press and business literature. In addition to the traditional material, we have added many thousands of citations from periodicals, books, newscasts, and Internet sites. The scope and breadth of these citations is intended to increase a reader's understanding of the terms as well as their use in the field." From the Introduction Scope and breadth.

To clarify important definitions, Reedassisted by a carefully selected and topically diverse team of M&A and legal expertsfeatures actual passages from press sources including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, CNNfn, and other national and local resources. When acronyms may tend to confuse issues, The Deskbook spells them out, and ensures that definitions are unambiguous and certain. When legal cases may help to explain issues, summaries of such cases are listed according to the best-known litigants. High-tech areas from Silicon Valley (San Jose, California) to SilicoRn Alley (Fairfield, Iowa) are identified.
