I really liked listening to this book. There were a few moments where things seemed really elementary, though it was good to review the information. Great narrator as well.
This book was so inspiring and made me think about all the things I do in life the way I do them. I definitely recommend this to anyone wants to be inspired and have their own business.
I've listened through this a few times because there is so much valuable information that Josh Kaufman has synthesized in the book.
He has an uncanny ability to simplify the principles of business so that anyone can gain insight about how to improve themselves and their life.
Not only is this an incredible reference for business but it also, in my opinion, has all of the substance of the "self-help" industry without any of the fluff to improve ones life where they see fit.
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.
