Worst than expected
I personally agree with the author when he says that today students should think twice before spending a lot of money in order to attend an MBA and I mostly agree with the introduction of the book, but the fact that the author is proposing this text as it is enough knowledge for the business is just crazy.
I actually find this book completely unuseful, even if well written. It is just a collection of definitions written in a way to be understood by everyone, but all concepts are incomplete enough to be unuseful and no example on how to apply the concepts to concrete problems is shown (of course it is not, because you simply can't fight real problems with just a few theoritical and informal definitions in mind).
Concluding, to me this book is just an example of good marketing, but I would not suggest it to my friends. If you agree like the author and I that for the most of the cases you can skip to spend money on an MBA, just educate yourself in another manner, like reading better books, attending online classes (e.g. Coursera ) or an open cheaper university by klebe85
