DescriptionMaster the fundamentals, hone your business instincts, and save a fortune in tuition. The consensus is clear: MBA programs are a waste of time and money. Even the elite schools offer outdated assembly-line educations about profit-and-loss statements and PowerPoint presentations. After two years poring over sanitized case studies, students are shuffled off into middle management to find out how business "really" works.Josh Kaufman has made a business out of distilling the core principles of business and delivering them quickly and concisely to people at all stages of their careers. His blog has introduced hundreds of thousands of readers to the best business books and most powerful business concepts of all time. In "The Personal MBA," he shares the essentials of sales, marketing, negotiation, strategy, and much more.True leaders aren't made by business schools-they make themselves, seeking out the knowledge, skills, and experiences they need to succeed. Read this book and in one week you will learn the principles it takes most people a lifetime to master.

Reviews for The Personal MBA
All Basic Information
I read this book expecting to read more about common concepts in business schools, and instead, I got basic definitions of words like "profit" and "power" and "automation".
While this book may be ideal for complete newcomers to business, it doesn't outline any new or (I would argue) any challenging concepts that are unique to business school. In fact, most of the information in this book is common sense. I've started skimming the book because I no longer find it useful to read the details between bold-faced main points. They are irrelevant or unnecessary.
The book is an excellent compilation of terms - more like a business dictionary than anything else. But even still, most of the definitions don't need to be researched - they are pretty obvious overall! by Brady Paron
