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.
It is the "light reading'. Good narated, sorted, but about 50% of material is not connected with MBA. It partly about self avareness, phychology, general knowlenge and so on.
Some ideas explained very well and explicitely, some too simple to be explained. All material for 'complete starters'.
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.
No 1 so far

I kind of like it all
It made me feel like I am being made ready and learning fast
Thanks to the Author
An exceptional book that I will listen to again and also get the print version for later reference. The author has read and squeezed the essence of a remarkable number of books on our behalf.
Josh did a great job at providing a very broad overview of many concepts and topics that are crucial to being successful in business and in life. Coupled with many references to sources I found this an extremely valuable audiobook.
This was a great book and I'm really impressed with the author. What an inspiration. He is only a few years older than me and has already learned so much. Two thumbs up for Josh Kaufman.
Good practical business advice, liked the portion on standard operating procedures and check lists. Will listen to it a second time and set several book marks the first time.
Too much of the book is spent justifying the books existence, arguing against MBA programs, detailing trivia from the author's life, etc., and not enough on solid business analysis and advice. There is a long section of the book dedicated to personal improvement that is irrelevant to the main topic. Some good business advice and parables, and definitely not a total waste of time.
Production values are not as high as most other audio books, with cheesy chimes throughout and several parts where there appears to be audio errors resulting in the repeating of passages.
