Macroeconomics by Gregory Mankiw.
Microeconomics by goolsby Levitt and syverson.
Money and banking by Mish kinzel
Financial Economics by Fabozzi

This is a good start. The first three are very easy to understand. They are college level though. The fourth book is a little more involved, but not too bad. I would recommend having a decent grasp of calculus and statistics, but as long as the theories are making sense you will probably understand everything.

I hope this helps.

I'm a ChemE student in University. How do I study business on my own and use it post-uni?

The textbooks above, supplemented by publicly released (professional) lectures online and befriending an Econ major on your campus to give you someone to hash out concepts with or bounce questions off of.

Might even be able to get a professor's ear from time to time.

How will I show employers that I can use this knowledge if I don't have a degree in it?

What aspect of business? If you are going broad. I would say you need to be able to know the basics of financial and managerial accounting. The basics of forecasting. Being able to read a financial statement. Decent at excel (pivot tables, vlookup, etc.)

Its a woman, Veeky Forums just loves dicks too much, so everything remotely attractive must be a trap.

Trash. May as well recommend "the little engine that could" if we're going with empty feel-good books.

Listen to EconTalk and pick random episodes that sound interesting.

For intro textbook, Macroeconomics by Mankiw, see first post.

For popular economics and less textbook style theory, read books from economists/academics e.g. Paul Krugman. Go on Goodreads and look at related books, you will become familiar with the most respected names. I can't think of them at the moment.

If you are a complete beginner start with Youtube videos and lectures - most are really interesting and not boring traditional classroom style lectures. It will be extremely hard to learn with no contextual knowledge of the economy and how anything works.
