    I have my MBA and this book is a great reference source. Courses are taught in an MBA program in a way that feels like you are trying to drink from a fire hydrant. There is so much information thrown at you that retention is at a minimum. You do not need an MBA to read or understand this book. Written for a broad audience with differing academic backgrounds.

    It was a great quick overview of MBA studies. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to get closer to understanding how business works.

    As I was reading the book, I thought to myself, is this boring because it's MBA stuff, or am I bored because I'm an MBA and I already studied this stuff? Conclusion: it's both. You can't make MBA material interesting. I've written elsewhere that there are just certain required courses you have to take (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/201407...) and only a few that are really inspiring. And if you want to take those inspiring classes, just take them. Skip getting the expensive degree.

I also think this book is a really solid investment if you want to dissuade someone from getting an MBA. Tell them to read it and if they like it, then sure, maybe they can go on to get one. If they don't like it, you just saved them $20k+. And if they hate it, well, maybe business isn't their gig. I'm not saying business is boring. It's one of the most exciting components of my life. But there are elements of business that I find boring (and others may not) that you *have* to get through in order to understand how the entire machine works. And this book is excellent at giving you this kaleidoscopic view.

    Decent prep review, fairly wide ranging on topics you likely will encounter during MBA courses. Not very in depth on examples though in regards to Finance and Accounting. Still a good start to get your head in the right place.

    meh. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to retain much of what I read; it’s simply too fast. A 30 page summary of quantitative analysis? Nope. Silbiger only has to make the space to make super quick statements without follow-up, such as when describing the Keynesian relationship: “It was especially true in the period between 1950 and 1985, but it has not been consistently so over time, such as the period since 1985.” What exactly is that saying? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ You’ll have to find your own answers to many s meh.

The book also suffers from being an older book that has been updated over time. A section recommending the internet as a really good way to do research, which lists a few useful search sites including yahoo and google as really good resources? You might get a headache from the speed at which your eyes roll into their sockets. And that worries me about other advice in the book which I know less about. I quickly realized this was going to be useful in the same way that books like “Teach yourself C++ in 21 Days” were useful in the age of dial-up networking and terrible internet searching — the book gives you a general overview of the topics, gets some key words and concepts in your head, and you can refer back to it whenever you need to. When you do that it will give you a quick overview,

    The best business book I have ever read! This book covers the essence of a MBA atthe world's top universities like Harvard and Stanford.Its content ranges from marketing to finance and even basic business law. Suitable for those wanting to pursue a MBA or even graduates who want to review what they have learnt in the fast-paced two year MBA course.

    this book is a must read for those of you who still deciding whether to take a MBA degree or not. here Steven describe the 10 main thing that you'll learn on MBA classes. don't expect something deep inside this book. all the chapter in this book only talk about a topic in general. overall this book is excelent there is a lot of diagram and real world case study. so it will be easy to read

    A should-read book on systems and planning for knowledge workers, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs.

    well, it's not a "step by step guide" to anything, rather it is 2 years of MBA teaching compressed into 10 pages, so don't expect much. At best it is an abridged handbook of MBA studies and at worst it is a 10 minute over the top introduction to what you are gonna learn in MBA schools. If you are really serious about MBA then go for online videos which will have more to offer and if you just wanna know the different branches of MBA studies then this book might help.

    It’s a great book for those who don’t have a business background and plan on starting an MBA program. It summarizes the important topics in the simplest form. People who already have a business background won’t feel the value of this book.

    The subheader promises a lot for this book, but in reality, the deliverable falls a bit short. The author himself even shares that the material isn't truly a substitute for an MBA, but rather a primer or reference guide for many of the concepts covered in business school. I personally found the book useful, especially as a refresher for my business school undergrad classes, of which many are but dusty memories in the back of my mind.

I personally found the book useful, especially as a refresher for my business school undergrad classes, of which many are but dusty memories in the back of my mind. The usefulness of the book is in it's high-level explanations of many different concepts. It will be rare, after reading this book, to find oneself in a meeting with NO idea of what's going on. I think it enables someone to follow the action, but it leaves off long before mastery. That said, I am guessing I will probably access this book many times in the future. The clarity and conciseness of the content makes it useful for boning up on topics ahead of critical interactions, and for framing presentation materials with the language and frameworks commonly used in business.

    I was procrastinating to read this book for full two months before finally settling down with it. Initially, I had a bias that the topics would be too complex for me to understand.But once i started with the book,it was relatively easy to get a grab at the topics. The experience was like one of my closest friends who graduated from a business school sat me down and gave an overview on the subjects and core skills crucial to a MBA.

    The first book I struggled with for nearly 6 months! I should have known that this is a god-sent-sign that MBA is not my calling and here I am after suffering for 6 months -from MBA course not the book!- I finished the book and dropped out of MBA(CHEERS :D)

    To me this book reaches its goal. I like it, it gives a clear and good overview, very pleasant to read. It may be a good starting point for others readings if you need or feel like going deeper into some mba specific skills.

    This was a fun, tongue in cheek primer to the information taught over the course of a formal business education. Obviously abbreviated, I found a lot of interesting and useful information that I believe I can quickly and easily apply! 10/10

    Good book I’d say the return on investment is pretty good. This book gave me the info I needed about business management and has pointed me to numerous relevant references. I would recommend.

    Reading a few months prior to MBA, to be honest feels pretty dated. Might be good as a refresher for those who have done one, but not sure there's enough depth here to take away any real action / insights.

    James K Worswick

    Surprisingly better than I'd expected. The information provided is straight forward and easy to comprehend (but remembering it all is a different subject). I was very happy that it talked about the Net Present Value and the Discounted Cash Flow in this book. If anything happens to my hard copy of this book, I am definitely buying another.

    If you are planning to get enrolled in master's program, or you are just curious what this corportate management is all about, this book gives you an easy introduction with interesting stories and insights.

    Peter Lange

    Loads of information which makes it pretty much impossible to remember everything. That's not a problem though because it gives you an in depth overview of Business Administrations and you can always go back to it if you want to re-read a passage. A great book.

    Comprehensive glimpse at the topics often taught at MBA schools. Good for a high level overview of business topics. A bit dry, but very useful reference.

    Reading this book made me happy I didn't go into business. I think I got a few lasting tidbits from it.

    Good beginners guide to understanding the curriculum that is taught. Can be explained to a child even, well at least a child in grade 10.

    it answers the question what is mba? and talks about stuff they teach in B schools. i don't think it can be simplified further. If you're an MBA aspirant then it is a good read for you.

    A good, simple, broadly focused book on basic business principles. I re-read it every couple years to re-focus on some things. We lose track of basics over time.

    Honestly i skipped some parts that I’m not interested knowing about at the moment I don’t think I picked the right time to read this book..
