Comments about The Personal MBA:
I would like to rate this book 4,5 stars because of the excellent content, but the quality of the paper and binding means that the book won't last long on the shelf. Because it is reference, it needs to have a long shelf life. The print is smaller than average, thus harder to read. Probably better to buy Kindle version.
Comments about The Personal MBA:
Was advised to give this a read as I have been contemplating doing an MBA. Not sure I need to do the MBA anymore...... Hopefully saved myself 3yrs and $50k
