Yes, if they are interested in pursuing a business venture, or learning how to a business actually operates this is an in-depth introduction.
Focus on the mind, how to work alone, how to work with people, and improving systems.
Personal MBA and its adjoining websites are excellent resources for the aspiring entrepreneur or seasoned professional. You are bound to learn something new, or reinforce what you may already know.
The bashing in the beginning lowered my expectations of the book which in the end made it ok. Book is a lot about practical business process and inspiration. One thing that is missed and which I think is the biggest advantage of a MBA programs and the main readon I would justify the cost is the network you build up. This is totally neglected in the book and it is focused on practical things. Still worth to listen.
the book was great. it has a few areas where josh repeats the same phrase back to back that need to be cleaned up. aside from that, the book is chocked full with nothing but golden nuggets.
If you like business books, this needs to be on your list. I learned some great new concepts, refreshed some former knowledge, added add some fuel to my fire of learning.
The author performs the narration, and does a stand up job. The book has great structure, and keeps you interested.
This is a good starter for anyone interested in business generally and includes material not typically taught in business courses. Pay attention to the references to other works imbedded in each chapter and explore to get the most value out of this book.
Great book for getting a general idea of all of the different facets of business.
Great listen and very informative. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to learn how experience trumps institutionalized learning.
You are what you feed your mind...so, feed it the good stuff!!!
I'm not sure how listening to this book is going to help me replace an MBA. I assumed that the information contained in this book would help me do that. There was a lot of common sense stuff but no real direction for application of what is being taught.
The only book I've ever recommended and gifted before even finish reading. When I heard that Josh was the narrator I immediately purchased the audio version and used it a thorough refresh to my last read. Industry testimonials have said enough. For those of us successful practitioners of self education and self driven personal improvement, this book and all of Josh's works speak to our souls. Thanks Josh, and hope you can continue creating and sharing invaluable brain content.

I love books and love talking about books. Hope my reviews are helpful!
Kaufman is a talented writer, but his true talent, if one can call it a talent, is being hungry for knowledge and tenaciously pursuing it to his benefit and others. In this book, we are given many reasons for becoming eternal, self driven learners, not only of methods to improve our businesses, but also our minds and our attitudes. Through real life example and through his many reading recommendations, the author has compiled a text that assuredly imparts useful techniques and methods, but is most valuable as a tantalizing look into how reframing problems and research in business and lifestyle can be immensely rewarding, as it certainly seems to have been for Kaufman.
