This book is not a replacement for an MBA. The author contrives an argument to say that MBAs are a waste of money. That's a moot point but is really just a tag to get people to buy the book..

I have an MBA and read the book. Both are valuable but in different ways. This book is not an either/or but 400 pages of insight in a wide range of areas in business. There are no magic "secrets" but well written summaries of established thinking and best practice.

Go buy the book - it's good value. And if you are thinking of an MBA, do it by distance at a top tier school - that's where the smart money goes!

Kaufman breaks down a typical business into its workstream components and tells you, from a high-level, what each does. For anyone who works in a somewhat-mature business, none of this will be new.

This would be a good book for a younger high-school student figuring out what to do in school, which is somewhat counter to the intent of the book. While I don't have an MBA nor believe I need one, this book definitely isn't a sub for one. It's more of a dictionary for business and explains the various components of one.
