This is a sharp, jargon-free guide to the core curriculum of an MBA program. MBA in a Book shows how to master the big ideas of business and use them in a practical way to build and enhance career success.
Great business thinkers, such as Michael Porter, Rosabeth Kanter, and Bill George of Harvard Business School; Paul Argenti of the Tuck School at Dartmouth; Jeffrey Sonnenfeld of Yale; Peter Senge of MIT; the entrepreneur and inventor Dean Kamen; and the financial innovator Michael Milken are just a few of the best brains in business, providing the intellectual nourishment that will help you play the game of business at the highest level.

MBA in a book. Sounds like it might be a MBA in a book doesn't it but it isn't. The first half was ok, I thought it might be warming up and start to hit some pearls of wisdom and theory behind a mba but it doesn't. One chapter is about dealing with press journalists, which is a bit niche. The last 45 minutes was name dropping all of the contributors which is just bore......ing! I never name drop, not after the Queen told me to stop. Try 'the personal mba' if you are interested in business tips, it's much more focused.
"Must have the wrong book"
This book is not what is promised to be "a sharp, jargon-free guide to the core curriculum of an MBA program". This is a collection of articles with no obvious connection to the MBA curriculum exept from being written by prominent scientists and researchers. Example: The first two is about adwances in medical research??? Waste of time.
i did enjoy this first part , i found the mind of a critical thinker, this, I truly love
looking forward to the part 2
"Loads of Advice."
Lacking in technical knowledge, but still worth the buy. Great for rookies.
