Better than my business degree One of the most useful, logical business books I’ve read. Covers everything necessary and doesn’t waffle. Packed with valuable information. Don’t waste money on a useless business degree like I did, where you’re taught by those who don’t even run a business themselves; run a business from an early age instead and read the right books. Thanks for the great read.

Very disappointing From the title of the book and the Seth Godin quote on the cover, I expected something amazing.However, this book is not an MBA, it may help people that have very little knowledge about business (and I mean like absolutely 0 knowledge) but, other than that, it’s a waste of time and money. It’s very superficial, it doesn’t go in any detail about the topics that it covers, it just gives some definitions. It’s useless if you know the basics of business.

Nothing to get excited about It is plausible that this is the content they teach you if you are studying for an MBA – but nothing here is particularly new and useful for any smart, well informed person. The book is well written and all, but I was left feeling it was way too long for what it is.
