Using the greatest material from his popular Blog Maverick, Cuban has collected and updated his postings on business and life to provide a catalog of insider knowledge on what it takes to become a thriving entrepreneur. He tells his own rags-to-riches story of how he went from selling powdered milk and sleeping on friends' couches to owning his own company and becoming a multibillion-dollar success story. His unconventional yet highly effective ideas on how to build a successful business offer entrepreneurs at any stage of their careers a huge edge over their competitors.

Critic Reviews

"Mark Cuban shares his wealth of experience and business savvy in his first published book, How to Win at the Sport of Business. It's New Year's resolution time, and Mark Cuban's new book offers the rationale for a good one." (Business Insider)
"In short, [How to Win at the Sport of Business] exceeded...expectations. Short chapters...got right to the point and were not filled with 'stuffing'." (Huffington Post)

Short and precise.

Motivational words from a man who knows what he's talking about. If you are starting a business or you are developing one, this is worth a listen.

Definetly worth 2 hours of your life

What did you love best about How to Win at the Sport of Business?

I love the fact that Mark was just a normal guy who turned it around to become a billionaire.

Which scene was your favorite?

When he got fired for not being at his place of employment while he was closing on a deal. It's what started his Maverick career.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes...this book is a one sitting multiple listen to book.

Real talk. Real motivation.

Mark Cuban is disorganized!? There's hope for me! Mark's stories and perspectives give me the renewed hope I need to keep moving forward toward my goals. This is my 2nd time reading and I'll read again next time I'm feeling beat up or discouraged.

Mark absolutely nailed it

This book is the hack to true performance and productivity. It's a peek into the mind of Cuban and how he views running a lifestyle that deserves his passion and persistence to keep up with his competitiveness.

Great content! But disappointed in no Mark!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, As others have said... worth the 2 hrs of listen for the unique perspective, despite the narration.

How could the performance have been better?

This book would have been so MUCH better for me if Mark had actually taken the time to narrate his own content. That really was the bummer of this audiobook. It was very hard to listen to the narrater over enunciate every sentence and be imaging how Mr. Cuban would be telling his own stories.
