Audie Award Nominee, Business and Educational, 2013

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 Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly-line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial models than what it takes to run a real business.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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey | 2/18/2014

    " Great book filled with practical and easy to understand advice. I listened to the book and now I need to go buy a paper copy so I can review certain parts. Highly recommend! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy | 2/13/2014

    " This is probably the best book about business in general that I have ever read. It is really more like a text book and to be used as a reference. I wish they used this in all my college business classes, I would have been far better off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/9/2014

    " returned to library p. 246. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake Pomper | 1/27/2014

    " A must read for anybody pursuing a career in business; or anybody for that matter. The concepts and ideas discussed can be applied to so many areas of life. This book really teaches you to "think like a businessman." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin Sparler | 1/21/2014

    " Informative and Succinct I would recommend this to anyone wanting to start a business, or even in business. It's kinda like reading a dictionary or glossary of business terms. Each idea is just one or two pages long. It defines the terms and illustrates the prominent idea in easily understood metaphors. Makes a great bathroom book because you can read a little section or two, put it down and come bak right where you left off without being lost. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erik Lomas | 1/13/2014

    " Fantastic advice. Heavy on content. Light on fluff. Chapters and subject matter are presented concisely in manageable bites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Breccan | 1/11/2014

    " I've already read the majority of the books this book tries to summarize. I'd suggest using his reading list over the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe Riley | 1/8/2014

    " I would not say this book is a replacement for an MBA or anywhere near it for that matter. I think it is a decent introduction to the world of business and management. There are a few pretty cool concepts presented and useful tips. Also a lot of good food for thought. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 12/23/2013

    " Clear and helpful overview of the business world. Would have preferred more about business and less about managing yourself/working with others - worthy topics, but not the reason I got this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lois | 12/17/2013

    " I was a lucky winner of a First Reads Giveaway for this book. The author offers great advice and insight and it's a must read for anyone in business "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ctrain79 | 12/14/2013

    " This is one I am actually going to buy as a great reference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg Santos | 12/7/2013

    " Great reference for Artists or anyone not wanting to drop 100K and 4 years to understand the fundamentals and high concepts of business. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 11/20/2013

    " It is well written but I don't adhere to the author's opinion that this book would substitute for an MBA.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack Oughton | 8/24/2013

    " BEHOLD: a 'business book' that doesn't suck hard. i'll be watching Josh's future writings like a hawk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rowan | 6/12/2013

    " Not that well written (to the point of being annoying, actually) but a good articulation of common sense work/business principles. Well researched and contains excellent resources. In short, your typical good business book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bree Hutson | 4/26/2013

    " Enjoyed the audiobook read by the author. Loved the recommendations for other business books but not a one all be all book for business. Great for everyone interested in business. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chester Wong | 2/19/2013

    " Awesome. I'm so glad I did not go to Harvard Business School or Wharton -- I learned so much in this book! I'm not joking. I highly recommend this read ... really really glad I did not spend any money or time getting an MBA. Thanks Josh Kaufman. Amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anandh Sundar | 1/7/2013

    " A very incisive book especially the principles of reciprocation, business models and new paradigms. This is a person who has read umpteen books and clearly practised what he preached. Really amazing, and worth the investment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Dunford | 12/8/2012

    " I knew I was going to be impressed with this book. However, this isn't the kind of book you can walk away from and glean the info you need. You have to reference it repeatedly. Truthfully, I don't think one is ever truly finished it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan Collier | 10/22/2012

    " Way better than I expected. A solid survey of all the major points I've covered in my MBA program. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reham | 10/20/2012

    " The book delivers on what has been promised on the cover, mainly by focusing on the theoretical part of the MBA. The author completely misses on the learnings gained through business cases analysis. "
