Mark McCormack, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in American business, is widely credited as the founder of the modern-day sports marketing industry. On a handshake with Arnold Palmer and less than 1,000 dollars, he started International Management Group and, over a four-decade period, built the company into a multimillion-dollar enterprise with offices in more than 40 countries. To this day, McCormack's business classic remains a must-listen for executives and managers.

Full of no brainer advice. Another marginal business book that the world does not need. Better to invest your time elsewhere...might as well read a Marvel comic

  • A Novel Introduction to Corporate Finance

Many introductory Corporate Finance textbooks tout their engaging, real-world examples, but they often fail to hold students' interest. A Novel Introduction to Corporate Finance offers a unique, innovative, and refreshing contrast. Structured as a work of literary fiction, the book successfully uses a compelling narrative to tell the “story” of corporate finance.

  • Are study sets available for audible listeners?

Many "audio" formulas, but no supplementary PDF.

The story-telling approach is well-done. However, the book soon goes into financial calculations. Related calculation formulas are spoken letter by letter in this audio book and whereas many other audio books supply a PDF so one can also see such information this book leaves the listener completely hanging in that regard. As a result, much relevant corporate finance information is provided in a very cumbersome format, and it is difficult to retain and apply the information without at least a summary of the key formulas and concepts in written and, thus, visual form.

With this seminal audiobook as a guide, listeners will learn how to unlock the passion within and become masters.

This is among the most vapid books I have listened to in a very long time.

If you are looking for practical advice then save your money and look elsewhere.
