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.
Josh Kaufman spoke clearly and use plain english, he also explain new terms as they came up. He gave examples and references to most of the business concepts. He mention the important of common sense, learning to know and use. Unlike how some people tell you to memorize facts and data to pass a course or test as people are commonly taught now. After listen to Josh Kaufman's audible book, I understand how my employer works and about how we compare to other business.
As far as listening quality goes Josh Kaufman's voice is very good. It does not make me sleeply. It sounds like he is talking to you not at you. Also, I do not hear well but I understand everything he said. No background distractions! If you have ever had the chance to really listen to a lot of radio shows, podcasts, or Audible book you know how annoying that can be. I have already played this audible several times again because the information is usefull and well spoken. Best of all I learn this while working around the house, at the gym, and even on my lunch breaks at work!
One interesting note about this audible is that Josh Kaufman mentions the important of the people element to business, how business are to solve problems for people and how important customer service is.
As stated, it's an introduction to cover the basics and fundimentals of business. You can get something out of the book no matter what level you are at. An excellent listen and highly motivational.
I recommend it only for people without a bussines background. The book is pretty basic.
It's too basic. I bought it hoping not only for concepts but for bussines ideas and I good just a few of them.
Nothing, just concepts and some examples.
Not at all.
I recommend it as a guide to understanding what else there is to read in order to keep learning the hidden secrets of business, pshycology, human behavior and many other aspects of our social life.
The author transmits a great sense of motivation to the reader!
The age of information is here, take full advantage of it!
Waiting for his next book!
NO, it is a give and take situation. The book is compact and gets your mind wrapped around all the important subjects of business and more. If you want to know more about a specific subject it is up to you to find out more
There is a bunch of new concepts that I have never herd before.
Yes, Business is always evolving and Josh has little to say about the new roles of IT and Marketing in his book.
This is a great book for people who do not have a deep background in business. I am an educator, and I am looking into starting my own private school, and this book proved incredibly useful to me. I was able to learn all the basics I need to have the confidence to start my own business.
My only complaint is that every once a while, there would be repeated lines.
