I'm just about to graduate with my MBA, so the title was obviously interesting. There are a few books out there that really do give you a brief treatment of the key ideas of an MBA curriculum. This is not one of them.

It's an interesting and friendly read. If you really know nothing about business, it might be a good place to start. If you already have a little experience (e.g. working for a few years) you might not get much from this book.

The book will be helpful for people and can e used as an additional handbook for those in the business field. But this book can never be used as a replacement for the actual MBA. The small little ideas given in this book, when explored and implemented will definitely help to develop your business. Must read for ages 13+

Why I like 10 MBA lessons

The five forces framework (Porter), value chain, core competence (Hamel), useful ideas for networking, self improvement, and personal advancement (learning groups, lecturing, mentors etc), pricing - perception of value (talk less about cost and more about value - boost perceived value), price and positioning, price and market value, price and elasticity, strategy - long term plan which has a definite goal in mind, guide to sources of great strategies, Good is no longer good enough (Seth Godin) - only a passionate team can make your Organisation outstanding, Kaizen, improving your standards, the new world of work (acceleration - slow down to the speed of your greatest asset - your thinking), how to start a high end successful consultancy, financial analysis - take into account the culture of the organisation as well, automation (hard vs soft communication, organizational soul, empathy as essential to some positions - customer service as an e.g.

I'm very glad I downloaded this book. It is well written and compresses the concepts into a fairly short book.

The author didn't say he has covered everything that's being taught in a business school. he has picked only 10 of them.

The book is alright. Nothing great nor awfully wrong about it. The book needs some editing. Apart from them, not everyone can apply these 10 instant MBA lessons. Somebody who is an entrepreneur needs a whole new concept from what's being written here.

I stopped reading midway. It wasn't worth my time but it might be useful for someone else.

This book may be good for someone who has never run a business, or worked in any kind of management position. It has a few decent thoughts, but this is not anything close to a replacement for a real education or experience.

If you are someone that are drawn by the title of this book, you probably already have a basic understanding of the concepts. This books does nothing to add to it. There is nothing unique or new, it is baically a summary of principles most of the target audience already understands. And it has nothing to do with an MBA.

There was nothing in this book that couldn't be inferred by an intelligent person who has put more than ten minutes thought into the value of a formal MBA program. It was a nice collection of office wisdom and well-written.

Not so bad, not so good. It is a collection of ideas, I recommend 10-Day MBA better. This book is like an introduction to resources, but does not provide any more information. Good if you are studying your MBA already.
