Vividly written and aptly covers most topics of business management studies. I highly recommend this book to all looking for revising their MBA education, or wanting to build skills before a proper full time MBA Programme.
You'll like this book if you enjoy lots of really simple examples.
I am still interested in business books, I just don't like this author.
This book is painful because of the constant onslaught of dumb examples.
Ok, we get it, there is a glut of MBAs out there. I just got back from my 10 year college reunion. At one point, a group of eight old friends were standing around drinking beer when we realized that all but one of us had an MBA (the odd man out had a masters in systems engineering). I thought this would be a good book to listen to every once in a while as a reminder to make sure I'm still taking an appropriately holistic view of my own business decisions. I thought that listening to the concepts while having some real world business problems in my head might generate some ah ha moments. But after listening to the author rant for 45 minutes about what a waste of money MBAs are, I just couldn't finish. Know your audience. We already bought the book; we already accepted the premise. Now get to the point!
I loved the message of learning by doing, and how practical experience is a better teacher than any classroom.
The outline of the book covered many vital areas in great depth.
The narration was enjoyable, so much so, I went through this book in two days... and I'm ready to go back through it again.
I enjoyed how well organized the material was presented.
While some examples were regurgitations from other books, and many of the stories have been told and retold throughout the years, I still feel this is a book everyone interested in business must have.
... but don't just have it on your library..
Listen to it.
I love it!
The stories used throughout the book were excellent as they were all interesting and clearly conveyed each point. The information was very clear with wonderful examples showing how each point can be implemented. In particular, the examples of what has not worked and why were especially helpful. I highly recommend this book.
Avid reader, listening is a new great adventure for me. Thank You!
very easy to learn more about the business world. Very educational with references to more learning. Thank you.
Not impressed. Pretty basic. Not MBA material. Not worth the time. Suggest skipping this book. Many better ones.
Really enjoyed listening to this book. Great book for the fundamentals of business, human interaction, and effective habits! Definitely recommend!
I liked the suggestions for further learning and his insight/tone of reading.
