Must have the wrong book

This book is not what is promised to be "a sharp, jargon-free guide to the core curriculum of an MBA program". This is a collection of articles with no obvious connection to the MBA curriculum exept from being written by prominent scientists and researchers. Example: The first two is about adwances in medical research??? Waste of time.

Not Bad

A bit misleading. Definitely not an MBA in a book. But, if really interested in business and business strategy you might like this book. There are some sections that provide some good insight into corporate governance and operations. I especially enjoyed the communications sections.
