One of the best overall MBA or Business books I have read
The categories fit together seamlessly.
Clear articulation and understanding enhancement
No its best to digest and then continue, I read the book over one hour slots
I love self development
Yes! Audio is much more practical.
The second part, it focused about interpersonal skills.
His expressions and tone bring much more detail to the to the content that only audio can give.
It reinforces what I know with a few Ah Ha! moments.
The Personal MBA is right up at the top of business books I have listened to
Josh Kaufman is obviously passionate about his subject matter
The Personal MBA gets to the point, the concepts are clear and easy to understand. Josh Kaufman takes the mystery out of what can be a mysterious and complex subject.
I am an amateur philosopher and a competent theoligian with a heart to learn and inspire others to authentic and meaningful living
Yes ... it is a very accessible distillation of advanced business thinking. For those of us on the run in our businesses and organisations, this is a great way to get the drift on some advanced thinking about how to succeed in business. It is just not the motivational 'you can do it stuff' but includessome actual hard core qualitative and quantative techniques. Before you make or lose your next fortune, read (listen) to this
Don't expect to learn MBA - corporate Business Skills or help with application here. I'd title it 'self help motivation books along with some very alternative basic startup dictionary style intros'. This knowledge can't help you in a real MBA.
MBA should be a protected word, as it sets high expectations.
I don't think that it's a bad motivation style book, but any hope of a good MBA skill learning got badly disappointed
I Love Being Happily Married
I am a voracious reader of business and management books. My biggest challenge is fitting in all the different books I want to read into the limited amount of time I have available. "The Personal MBA" compiles key pearls of wisdom from dozens of books and ties them all together in an easy to follow narrative. Definitely well researched, extremely well written and superbly read. Love it!
I give it a ten all the way. I thought the audiobook was interesting and had valuable information.
This book is filled with quick summaries of various business topics and offers a fast overview of many popular subjects.
Well narrated by the author with good audio quality.
This was a good book ... but it doesn't seem to be an MBA book. There is one chapter on equations and metrics (I expected and wanted this) and then a ton of chapters covering basic marketing, social psychology, and self-help topics (not what I expected). Fortunately, Mr. Kaufman is a good writer and good reader. I may buy the paper version to find the cited books to delve deeper.
The terms and ideas are describes clearly and simply.
That I know more about running a business that I did before reading this book.
Knowing his own story.
You're in business.
