Publisher's Summary

Forbes calls this book one of seven books that all entrepreneurs must hear right now (along with Peter Thiel's book and The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People).
In this book you will learn how to get a meeting with anyone. You will learn how to take your career to the next level. You will learn how to reinvent yourself in ways that you never thought was possible! Chris Haroun has had the opportunity in his career to meet with the top CEOs, entrepreneurs and investors in the world, including Warren Buffett, Bill Gates and the CEOs of most large technology companies. This book is an amalgamation of business advice that Chris has compiled from his many meetings with successful business people over the past two decades as well as observations of why brilliant entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg have become incredibly successful. Business schools do a good job of providing students with theoretical and practical frameworks that can be applicable to real world problems but business schools often miss teaching students some of the most crucial business lessons like how to network or how to find customers or how to get a job!
Chris Haroun is an award winning business school professor, venture capitalist and author. He is currently a venture capitalist at a prominent San Francisco Bay Area venture capital firm and has previous work experience at Goldman Sachs and several firms that he has founded. He has successfully raised and also has managed over one billion dollars in his career. He has an MBA from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Commerce from McGill University.

Good Tips, too many shameless plugs

What made the experience of listening to 101 Crucial Lessons They Don't Teach You in Business School the most enjoyable?

The book gave a good overview of some great business tips. It also did so succinctly without wasting my time. Some tips did seem to be filler content just so the author could reach "101" tips.

Any additional comments?

The content was good but the constant references to his online courses were irritating. If it weren't for these constant "plugs" I would likely be interested in seeking out the author's other offerings but listening to these plugs was like having commercials in a book which was frustrating.

Such a great book! I was totally pulled into the book and listened it all of it in one sitting. I stopped it many times and repeated certain lines that stuck out to me. I took notes and really enjoyed the concept of hire slowly and fire quickly. Thanks Chris! I also purchased his MBA program and I am excited to get started on that.
