Personal MBA was enjoyable because Josh Kaufman broke the chapters up into short chapters that were concise and to the point.
The most memorable moments of the book was when I realized that there were so many basics that I wasn't aware of.
He cut right through the minutia.
No it doesn't encourage listening to all of it in one sitting.
This is a great book to start with if you want to learn about business in general or if you want to learn how to research deeper into a specific concentration.
Absolutely recommend it. It provides the direct to the point FAQ's of all the things you wanted to know or needed to know but didn't have time to ask. Question, Answer and reasonable example. A cheat sheet for success.
There really isn't a character in this format.
Again, no scene in this.
It's a book of tag lines.
These questions don't apply to this book.
I am in the unique situation to actually attend a lot of very prominent business school (Haas @ Berkely) classes.
Let me simply say, this book goes no where near the quality or depth of information provided in the classes I sit in on.
It is a good primer on business, but just that. It doesn't speak on deep MBA topics.
Author is a bit wordy in some chapters but delivers a lot of information for the money for those of us without a Business Degree.
I loved how he explained the worth of an MBA in these days and it can be made for by reading and learning as you go. I believe in hard work and I believe that the core focus of this book was not to rely on a piece of paper you will pay a lot of money for to bring you happiness.
Josh actually has one of the better narrative voices but his over pronunciation of words absolutely drives you crazy in the first few hours. Someone may have had a word to him later in the book because it does ease off but I was very close to not finishing it due to that one small thing.
Don't over pronounce words, no need for it.
Actual material was good and well researched.
Yes! Every three months is the plan.
I have not. I hope to in the future.
Yes! But I couldn't.
Great for people like me the self learner.
No - this book reads like a textbook. It is difficult to listen to because there are lists of principles and concepts. The information seems well-researched and the author delivered on my expectations for content. There is just very little story line.
Unlikely. I would certainly like to own some of his books in a physical form, but listening to them is very much like hearing someone read a Psychology 101 textbook - interesting, but hard to stay engaged with.
No, the information was too dense to digest in one sitting.
Solid information that I want to have, just more useful if delivered in a media other than audio.
This book summarizes principles of business in a condensed but effective form. It covers key principles and things you can relate to practically and not theoretically. Especially recommended to those planning on starting their own business.
Just skip the intro or breeze through it. I had thought of returning the book half way in the intro but once the first chapter starts it is quite good.
