Very clear introduction to the key concepts covered by an MBA. It is mercifully free of the jargon and bluster that normally accompany this genre. It should be noted that the book is made up a series of definitions, meaning that it can often feel a bit like a dictionary than a sustained argument. ( )

Annoying structure. ( )

This was a really good listen as an audio book. It's going in my regular rotation. Tons of easily digestible and implementable business and lifestyle ideas. It was pretty much perfect for starting a new year! ( )

This audio did not deliver on its title, however may still be worth listening to for it does have many good incites. While I agree with many of his points about the ROI of an MBA that does not mean this book is even close to a substitute. He tries to cover so much that what he does cover is very shallow. It also seems to go into areas that are of interest to him, but not sure how they relate to MBA. ( )

A wonderful, concise overview of business topics, usually reserved for MBA students and business aficionados.

Josh Kaufman managed to make this both accessible, interesting, and very 'learnable'.

Organised into twelve chapters (Introduction, Value Creation, Marketing, Sales, Value delivery, Finance, The Human Mind, Working with Yourself, Working with Others, Understanding Systems, Analysing Systems, Improving Systems), each further broken up into small, bite-sized chunks of information, you can easily pick this book up for a two-hours read or a five-minute read.

As a reader of numerous psychology and productivity books, a number of chapters in the middle where somewhat tedious and simplified (The Human Mind, particularly). Regardless, the book as a whole is still a fantastic resource and deserves a spot on your shelf. ( )
