It's a very comprehensive and thorough book which allows you to build on what you know, while giving you a roadmap to follow and see where potential holes in your understanding may exist. The book gives a terrific overview of business in bite-sized self contained chapters, so you can drop in and out at will.
What I love most about the Personal MBA is that it doesn't fail to deliver on it's promise of practical, common-sense based business insights that anyone can understand and use. This book is rich in practical ideas drawing from an extensive number of diverse sources. It's well worth the cost as I feel I have a real treasure on hand with this book. I highly recommend it.
The book is organised in short easy to read sections; it's easy to thumb through and logically arranged.
It's one of the most useful books I have read.
