If you've attended a good business school (undergraduate degree), this book will not teach you a lot. At least it didn't in my case. In my opinion, what it does is explain all sorts of definitions a bit broader than the original definition itself. It doesn't really have a thorough story, and it's not that easy to follow. The webpage – personalmba.com is a great source of knowledge for further study, and the book can be a good tool for understanding various business definitions if you have close to 0 prior knowledge, but for someone who has attended good undergraduate business program – you won't find many new and original thoughts.
