Coming from an Economics background, I found this book very educational. It really helped break down a few business terms and structures. It was also a great review for understanding the different business processes. I highly recommend this book to anyone no matter your expertise.
I think this book is just the start. It is like the table of contents of what you should be reading and educating yourself. I have learned a lot from this book and it is like an eye opener.
This book is amazing. It has so much content and information, it truly is a book I will visit often. The sections being split up in categories/topics make it very organized and easy to pick up even if away for a while. I also have the physical book and write all sorts of notes in it. The book recommendations he has are also really good.
Hands down,I must have for any business professional.
the book focuses on the key areas of business in simple to understand terms and explanations. anyone can learn about the basics of business with this book.
Very dense. Each bullet point is a springboard to further studies, unless you're already competent on that point. Also a good refresher across multiplicity of skills required to manage. Reminded of things I knew but had forgotten.
Good book, definitely recommend it. Lots of information that I needed and lots of information that confirmed what I knew but was unsure if it applied to me. Thanks Josh.
the books is written by a genius whose genuine goal is to let potential business people to learn the world of business in its simplest form yet on point and useful. thanks!
I agree with the idea that it is not necessary to get an MBA to be successful, and was expecting to hear practical information that would actually help me improve my own skills and knowledge, but at a minimum the first two chapters of this book are all about how the author researched and wrote the book and a bunch of examples of why the MBA is not necessary. I'm not sure I want to finish it, I've heard the exact same thing with different words for over an hour. All that waiting for something to happen is exhausting.
The performance is on the other hand, very good, not boring at all. If I survive the rest of the book and like the next chapters I'll update this review.
Superior distillation of the essence of business knowledge and provides a terrific overview. Great refresher or introduction. Does not replace the traditional MBA.
