's review

really liked it

I'm studying an MBA at the moment (actually, for the last few years, almost done!) so I feel qualified to discuss this book.

To the book. It's a nice high level overview of a lot of the topics that an MBA will touch on, and quite a few that an MBA won't touch on at all. It is likely to be very helpful to all sorts of people. Anyone, even someone with an MBA, would be able to get something from this, particularly as it also covers "soft" subjects like personal development.

But be clear, this is no replacement for an MBA, not by a long shot. It doesn't teach the first thing about critical analysis, about structuring and communicating thought, or about financial analysis. It only grazes a mass of subjects, and a chapter on some important topics can be read in under ten minutes.

So, enjoy the ride, but don't fool yourself either.
