Description

Getting an MBA is an expensive choice - one almost impossible to justify regardless of the state of the economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly-line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial models than what it takes to run a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether....

Josh Kaufman founded PersonalMBA.com as an alternative to the business school boondoggle. His blog has introduced hundreds of thousands of readers to the best business books and most powerful business concepts of all time. Now, he shares the essentials of entrepreneurship, marketing, sales, negotiation, operations, productivity, systems design, and much more, in one comprehensive volume.

The Personal MBA distills the most valuable business lessons into simple, memorable mental models that can be applied to real-world challenges.

True leaders aren't made by business schools - they make themselves, seeking out the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to succeed. Read this book and you will learn the principles it takes most business professionals a lifetime of trial and error to master.

Exercice délicat et réussi de synthèse

Le propos du livre est assez ambitieux : délivrer l'essence des concepts qu'on apprend dans un MBA en un seul livre.
Je ne suis pas certain que la valeur d'un MBA soit dans les concepts (mais plutôt dans les réseaux qu'on s'y crée) mais en s'en tenant à la synthèse des modèles et concepts clés de la pensée business, ce livre est très réussi.
C'est un exercice délicat de vulgarisation sans tomber dans le simplisme. Je ne peux pas juger pour tous les modèles exposés mais pour ceux que je connais, ça me semble assez réussi.
En tous cas Josh Kaufman rend tout ça vivant et intéressant. Narration très agréable par l'auteur.

Bon livre mais un peu flou

Je trouve que c’est consistant et plutôt destiné pour les entrepreneurs. Ça reste un peu flou pour les non entrepreneurs et pour ceux qui sont en train d’apprendre et de se former pour démarrer un business.

Nice summary if you haven’t read anything else

I’m not from US, I do not leave in country that I need to pay more than a mortgage to have title at the uni, and I do not believe we need to pay soo much to have that title. So my perspective of the book is different.

It’s a nice summary of lots of books, and if you haven’t read anything about management and brain it will give you a good start. If you did, you will find yourself skipping sections as you already know this, read this, heard of this. This was my case. I did not expect to get a summary of books. The thing that was interested took like half of one of the chapters. This was a knowledge I was seeking - description of different kind of shortcuts and business keywords.

Not an MBA, But A Damn Decent Experience.

If you're expecting this to be a substitute for an MBA course, you'll be disappointed, and rightly so. If, however, you are looking for an excellent summary of a great deal of critical business, psychology and marketing concepts, that any aspiring entrepreneur or successful business owner should know, then this is the audiobook to get your hands on.
It's 13 hours, but i'll still be giving it another listen in a few months or so, a testament to it's quality. Highly recommended.

After a slow start there's some good stuff

What made the experience of listening to The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business the most enjoyable?

Minuses - 1) The author starts off with an attack on MBAs and a justification for the book. That is not necessary and doesn't resonate well. I very nearly gave up on it for that reason, so skip the first chapter. 2) This is not anything like an MBA, which is fairly obvious, but I think the title is unnecessarily misleading and should be changed to 'Shortcut to an MBA' or something like that.

Pluses -1) The author has done an enormous amount of good research. 2) He covers a large amount of ground 3) He has some good insights on the topics he covers 4) The author narrates and it comes across really well. 5) There are ongoing online resources.

Overall a good purchase - I bought it on audio and kindle

Good Business Education

Where does The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I bought this for my daughter, but I decided to listen to it and I was suddenly flooded with business ideas!! I'm 53 years old and I am now on the cusp of some great ideas!! Excellent "read"

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business?

For me, it was the author's prologue on how he got to this point in his own journey. It was inspiring.

What about Josh Kaufman’s performance did you like?

Sounded a bit robotic, but nonetheless, a good narrator.

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

It's 13 hours, so I could not. Plus it's something you need to listen to and then digest.

Any additional comments?

This information is rich; it's valuable. The most important component to any MBA is the student. How hungry are they? You can have all the Harvard and Yale MBAs you want, but unless the individual is proactive,....

Very Good Business Basics Overview

Would you listen to The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business again? Why?

Yes. Plenty of relevant material to educate the business owner (and there staff) with no formal business education.

Very well arranged progression of topics and concepts.

Any additional comments?

Only reason I gave it a 4 star was the completely unnecessary and relevant beginning which goes on much much much too long about how useless a regular MBA is. Skip this, it adds nothing to the content.

The real meat of the book is excellent. I will be buying the hard copy for visual reference to accompany the audiobook.

Would make and excellent base for the developing staff basic business training.

Great Book that Covers the Basics & Provides Refs

This audio book is packed with plenty of useful information on critical business concepts. Additionally, Josh provides a wealth of references that can be used to further investigate a particular concept in more details. Great resource for anyone who runs a small business or is seeking to understand the fundamentals of running a business.

Good but grating...

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

I recommend this book for it's functional information.

Would you be willing to try another book from Josh Kaufman? Why or why not?

I would hesitate to try another book by Josh Kaufman, unless it had a different narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Josh Kaufman’s performances?

Unfortunately, his clipped voice and unusual pronunciation made it difficult to concentrate on the otherwise interesting subject matter.

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

Listening to this book is a personal battle between loving the content and trying to tune out the talker.

Any additional comments?

I probably should have gone old-school and bought the printed version, or at least the ebook.

Good Information Overload

I really got a lot of good practical stuff out of the first part of the book. That part of the book seemed relevant to daily business practice... then most of the rest of the book had good information, but it was about human behavior and behavioral science... this was good info, but not what I wanted the book for. It almost seems like he should have done a separate but related book to cover all that. All of the scientific experiments and results mentioned were interesting, but it was way too much information for what the book implies. However, too much is better than not enough in this case and I would use a credit & recommend to a friend just because of the practical value of the first few hours alone. Hope this helps someone.

A great reference with a distracting narration

It's rare that I listen to audio book and then run out and buy the dead-tree edition. But I will with this one. This is a reference book that should be on the desk of every entrepreneur or business owner. In clear, simple terms, devoid of buzz words Kaufman lays out everything you need to know about business. It truly is an MBA-lite.

However, as a reference book, it's really not a great listen on your daily commute. Think dictionary-on-tape. Maybe that's a little harsh, but it's not exactly a pot boiler that makes you miss your exit.

My only other complaint is the narration. Ever since listening to William Gibson read "Neuromancer," I've avoided books read by the author, but I decided to make an exception in this case. That was a mistake. Kaufman is no Frank Muller or Scott Brick.

Fantastic content and very useful. I'll be referring to this title again and again.

Great until chapter 6...

Clearly knows a lot about finance. Great book for the introduction to business. I've validated things from my economics class at Iowa State. Until you get to chapter 6 and this guy wants to take time in an MBA book to influence you to go vegan. This is highly inappropriate and misguided. This is a feeble attempt by anti-ag groups to attack our food producers. It's weird that he mentions essential amino acids and veganism in the same few sentences. Animal protein is one of the best sources of essential amino acids your body needs. There is a reason why the food pyramid includes meat and dairy (I wanted to include insulting language here). The only thing I learn about smart people during my short career getting my PhD is that smart people never know how dumb they really are. You can be a genius in finance/business and a complete imbecile in all other realms. This guy is no exception. When I need an Rx I go to a doctor, when I need a cavity filled I ask a dentist, when I need tax help I go to a CPA, when I need business help I buy this book, but when you need personal life choices on food and exercise always go to the guy with a degree in business..... 🙄

Gutes Buch - harte Arbeit

Josh Kaufman beschreibt sich selbst als introvertiert. Er ist offensichtlihc der Typ, der selbst gerne viel liest und sogar gerne Bücher schreibt. Dass das nicht der einzige erfolgreiche Weg ist, ist vielen klar. Wenn man als Einsteiger in einem Großunternehmen von einer Eliteschule kommt, tut man (Josh Kaufman) sich leicht zu behaupten man brauche den hoch angesehenen Abschluss gar nicht. Muss man sich aber mit einem weniger angesehenen Studienabschluss erst einmal beweisen und hocharbeiten, ist besserer Rat gefragt. Gerade in den Großunternehmen unserer Zeit kommt es mehr denn je auf die persönliche Einstellung an. Natürlich ist viel gute Literatur sehr hilfreich, aber eben nicht genug. Mir gefällt z. B. auch noch "Flight Plan" von Brian Tracy - das Buch geht mehr auf die persönliche Einstellung zur Karriere und zum Leben ein. Eine - so meine ich - gute Ergänzung zu "The personal MBA".

A good summation

He pulls information from a lot of material I have already read. That being said he does have a lot to say in a short time and if he didn't quote some of the most famous finance and business books in history I'd be disappointed. A good book to start with and refer to later.
