The book is a collection of ideas in different business domains, some of it are useful, many so basic, but it is not waste of time to read it once you will find couple of things you missed or forget
Josh did a great job at providing a very broad overview of many concepts and topics that are crucial to being successful in business and in life. Coupled with many references to sources I found this an extremely valuable audiobook.
I found this to be a great primer and almost an encyclopedia, both in scope and delivery, of the modern business person. There is an incredible wealth of practical and theoretical info. I don't know that this could be substituted or anything close for an MBA, as the concepts are more aligned with modern solopreneurs who are building medium sized businesses online and in person, as opposed to large corporate and Enterprise entities. That said, there is some good information about how any size business works, from supply chain to understanding how to improve and optimize. I definitely recommend the book, just be prepared for a long and, at times, dull read / listen.
This was a great book and I'm really impressed with the author. What an inspiration. He is only a few years older than me and has already learned so much. Two thumbs up for Josh Kaufman.
This a text book, and just fact after fact after dull bloody fact. I stopped after 20 mins, and switched to The Wolf of Wall Street.
The lack of storyline, no examples to support his arguments. And it stops every 2 mins.
Avoid buying the audio version, just buy the paperback version.
I am a plastic surgeon by profession A father by heart A trader by choice A teacher by passion A child by curiosity
it is overall a good book with some practical principles you can use
definitely better than the first 20 hours which was a total waste
I enjoyed the thorough review of important business concepts. Josh did a great job being concise with each topic. I could have used some additional examples as I digested each concept. I had to pause and ponder the topics more pertinent to me. That is okay because it is part of learning. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to expand their business knowledge and understanding. The chapters and topics covered were thorough.
I believe if you are starting out this is a great example for a foundation in business practices and a general idea of how a business operations work from day to day in a simple form..
Yes, Josh Kaufman (author/narrator) has a way of keeping it livelier than the print version. (I listened to it at 1.3X speed, might be too slow at normal speed)
Many good parts, my favorites were the business idea evaluation methods and the bureaucratic breakdown and communication sections.
