Good Content, Too Much Fluff around it

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're looking for a book that covers the basic things an MBA learns to keep in mind while managing business challenges, this covers a fair amount of ground in a fairly short time. It's worth listening too if you need a run-through of the basics of business.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The old way of speaking was to tell 'em what you're going to say, say it and tell 'em you said it. This takes that to extremes with unidentified hosts presenting 1/4 of the information, then letting the professors elucidate. Unfortunately, it's often repetitive, and the transitions are jarring. It would be good to either get straight talk from the professors or the upbeat, short-and-sweet chatter of the other narrators. The two don't go together very well.

Good Stuff!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book needs an upgrade to reflect more recent changes in the business environment since the 90's.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The review of the ABC's and paying the PRICE models. Behavioral Science history was in my view the least important or revelant.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

VERY well presented! however, a little outdated.

Was The One-Day M.B.A. worth the listening time?

Very good refresher course to regain the lost, forgotten or ignored principals of the MBA course content.
