A commercial for Harvard

A few good ideas (thank God) but generally this is nothing but a commercial for Harvard's executive program. Don't waste your money. Call Harvard and ask for a brochure if that's your cup of tea.

I thought that I could pick up some good best practices from the audio. I was very disappointed. Don't purchase this book. Better bet would be any of the New York Times Pocket MBA series.
