Not a bad book

I am from Dubai and bought the book because it is on the top 5 non-fiction bestsellers on Dubaicity.com. I enjoyed the book! Short, sweet, and to the point!

The only credible thing is the title

I bought this book based on the title, assuming Harvard Business School would have some good idea's. And having seen some good reviews else where. Honestly the only thing clever about the book is the title that evokes credibility. I found this book very basic and with no real new insights or value. It may be useful to someone who's starting out in business for the first time having lived under a rock for the years prior, but if you have been in business or read any books on it before then pass on this one.

The examples are painful to listen to and go into great detail to describe meanings of basic business terms. For example "inductive logic" was demonstrated as:

"I like gentle and clean cats,
Mylo is a cat,
Mylo is also gentle and clean,
Therefore i like Mylo"

Thats actually the text from the book! Mylo feature in several examples, in that chapter.

Having listened to about 90% of the business catalog here on Audible I believe this is by far the worst book thus far. I strongly suggest you spend your time some other way.
