Josh did a great job of writing and narrating this book. I rely on this and additional references to obtain self education that I plan to use for a successful business in the future. It's also great information for my current position with a large company.
I've never been to business school but just from being out doing things in life trying to find something that works I feel this book in ways was what it tried not to be. He repeated him self often name dropped a lot and told me concepts I feel im ready knew so why did I like it this guy understands the things I am most of us know better than we do he will break it down and really help you get a grasp on some real fundamental concepts
Wow, the author has such an odd complex about never getting his graduate degree, it swamps the first several hours of the book. He drones on about the cost of graduate school and how all you really need to do is read books, saying that it is a great gift to not persue a masters degree. He misses the bigger point that grad school's goals are not just a diploma but also an incredible platform for networking with high performing individuals, leading researchers in your chosen field, a venue where you can converse, argue, and explore ideas and concepts that one is unlikely to experience outside higher education. Strangely he does not discount an undergrad degree (which he has) which seems incongruous since, if all you need to do is read books, the same approach must be fine for both undergraduate and graduate degrees. This MBA book is good, certainly not groundbreaking and has decent concepts that are both proven over time, and certainly not innovative.
I really liked listening to this book. There were a few moments where things seemed really elementary, though it was good to review the information. Great narrator as well.
This book was so inspiring and made me think about all the things I do in life the way I do them. I definitely recommend this to anyone wants to be inspired and have their own business.
I've listened through this a few times because there is so much valuable information that Josh Kaufman has synthesized in the book.
He has an uncanny ability to simplify the principles of business so that anyone can gain insight about how to improve themselves and their life.
Not only is this an incredible reference for business but it also, in my opinion, has all of the substance of the "self-help" industry without any of the fluff to improve ones life where they see fit.
The narration and content were not interesting enough to keep my attention. Too many lists to keep track of in an audio book. Content was not deep enough to be interesting or useful.
It didn't come close to meeting even my lowest expectations... Very sophomoric. If you want to learn something, it's not going to happen by listening to this. Sorry to say, it's not worth ones time.
