Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of Mark H. McCormack's What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School: Notes from a Street-Smart Executive.

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 at every level, featuring straight-talking advice you'll never hear in business school. Relating his proven method of "applied people sense" in key chapters on sales, negotiation, reading others and yourself, and executive time management, McCormack presents powerful real-world guidance on:

  • the secret life of a deal
  • management philosophies that don't work (and one that does)
  • the key to running a meeting - and how to attend one
  • the positive use of negative reinforcement
  • proven ways to observe aggressively and take the edge
  • and much more

Available in a variety of formats, this summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour the whole book.

Glad I got exec summary than waste money on book

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

Fell asleep while driving

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The content was boring and the delivery was boring. Common sense advice delivered by a Ben Stein disciple.

Has Mark H. McCormack's What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School: Notes from a Street-Smart Executive Summary turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not far from it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tony Armagno?

Anyone with a pulse

What character would you cut from Mark H. McCormack's What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School: Notes from a Street-Smart Executive Summary?

I'm not sure. it was so repetitive sounding that I lost track of the content.

Not great

The notes don't do Mark justice I'm afraid. Buy the book. It is fantastic and you will not be disappointed.
