I purchased this book as a refresher to the MBA I recieved 5 years ago from a local college. I found the subject matter very superficial and generic. The author did not appear to have a strong background in business. Few real word examples other than his experience in marketing at Proctor and Gamble or non-business examples were used to make a point.
The content in this book may be beneficial to a recent college graduate looking for a basic synopsis of general business principles or an entry level business major trying to improve oppurtunities in the workplace.

I really got a lot of good practical stuff out of the first part of the book. That part of the book seemed relevant to daily business practice... then most of the rest of the book had good information, but it was about human behavior and behavioral science... this was good info, but not what I wanted the book for. It almost seems like he should have done a separate but related book to cover all that. All of the scientific experiments and results mentioned were interesting, but it was way too much information for what the book implies. However, too much is better than not enough in this case and I would use a credit & recommend to a friend just because of the practical value of the first few hours alone. Hope this helps someone.
this is not how I wear my hair
If you don't learn something about business from this book, you weren't listening.
Up there with the greats like "How to win friends and influence people" and "Think and Grow Rich". A true classic that will stand the test of time.
Josh brings true value and genuine character to this book.
Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, Stephen Covey step aside, there is a new Gun in town.
Great book on so many levels. Helpful, insightful and a great reference to focus and follow through on increasing your effectiveness and understanding of many vital subjects and actions.
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.
Im a client of audible for more than a year and I listen at least 1 book a month, sometimes two. This one have listen two times. IT SAYS SO MUCH THINGS that I had lived that make me say: if i knew then what i heard now.
If there where an spanish version I would like tu buy it, if not I will love to translate this my self, so I can recommend it to so much people I know that are making so much mistakes.
This is my first time
No 1 so far
The millionaire mba
I kind of like it all
It made me feel like I am being made ready and learning fast
Thanks to the Author
I very highly recommend this book as it explains basic business concepts in the first half of the book (which is what I was looking for) and gets into a whole bunch of funky and useful "positive psychology" concepts in the second half of the book (bonus!). All topics are explained concisely and engagingly, with Josh Kaufman doing an super job narrating his book. Look at the purchase price as an excellent investment.
Chapter 7, Working with Yourself, was worth the price of the book alone.
I've listened to many of the chapters repeatedly and I've learned a lot.
I'd recommend this book to anyone wanting a crash course in business.
If you're looking for techniques, case studies, and strategy, don't look for it here.If you've never read or been involved with business, then this would be a good place to get an introduction to basic concepts.I never went to business school, but have working in business and marketing management for over 8 years. I purchased this book in hopes that it would be a nice, easy listen that would also fill a bunch of academic points I might have missed by not receiving a formal education. Well, I was dead wrong. This book is a summary of only the most 101 level of business.It will teach you audience targeting tricks like "Oprah's core audience is not likely to include burly men in leather jackets"....enlightening. I'm pretty sure that most people already know that they can't market to each and every person. I listened for over 4 hours and didn't learn a single new idea, word, or technique. Overall, "the personal mba" is extremely misleading. But then again, he must by doing something right with the guise, as he is definitely more wealthy than I am.
