Josh Kaufman grabs your attention and keeps it thru-out the book. Short sections and hard hitting material makes this book a must read for today's entrepreneur!
I agree with many other reviewers that the intro discussing the disadvantages of formal business school was far far too long. Take away the long intro and this was a really excellent book.
Josh splits the subjects up very well into various chapters and small inter-related segments per chapter. Making it an easy book to start-stop. There are lots of various concepts presented and explained interestingly with good real life examples.
You won't be an expert in any one area after completing this book, but you will have a good grasp of all the basic business concepts, and the author refers you to lots of other books where you can delve into more details if you are interested.
I've been in business over 25 years, but still found new ideas and angles on concepts that I thought I had a good grasp of.
Unlike other reviews where Josh's speech and narration is criticized, I found his narration to be well paced and presented with good energy. I personally thought narration was very good.
All in all a worthwhile purchase.
This book did a great job breaking down a business and explaining all of the steps. It is the first book you should read before digging into the 99 other books he recommends on his website. I already ordered the real book it was that good!
I enjoyed this audiobook. It was very informative for me, i have my own small business but im clueless as far as proper management and growth. i have big plans for myself and my business. this book certainly helps!!!
This is a concisely delivered, full-scope summary of business as a whole. It is extremely dense with useful information. It delves into peripheral topics seamlessly, including the art of improving the self as it pertains to excelling in business. I would recommend this for anybody interested in any kind of business, beginner to expert.
Easy to listen to.
I've listened to several audio books on this topic, and the Personal MBA is my favorite! I was expecting this book to be more business driven, but it turned out to be a very well rounded guide for best practices in everyday life. Josh does an excellent job of keeping the listener engaged by mixing in personal stories, citing quotes, and referencing other influential books most impactful concepts. I will certainly start on his recommended reading list to expand on topics Josh touched on.
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.
Josh Kaufman's e-book is clear, concise and effective. I like that the chapters are set up in such a way that you can go back and find those concepts that are most important to you for repetition and assimilation.
