On other thing: This book badly needs a new edition! It was last updated in 2005, which leaves out a whole lot (market crash, recession, social networking boom, general technological advances, etc etc). The passages about the "internet" usually made me chuckle out loud (the section on information gathering and online research mentions AltaVista as a resource!). Granted, many of the lessons remain relevant, but it was odd to read a whole chapters on finance and ethics without any mention of subprime lending.
Overall, I think it's worth the money. I wouldn't go try to run a Fortune 500 company afterwards, but it may set you off in the right direction.

The style of author makes it very easy to read and to understand. The goal of the book is not to give detailed in-depth knowledge about each topic, but the same holds true in a regular MBA. The main goal is to introduce the basic concepts and to make the reader aware of them. In real life, one has always to be able to research and study in detail some areas as needed.
I have considered for some time to enroll in a MBA. The greatest value I see in it, is the networking with other colleagues with different backgrounds and different experiences.
If you can not afford the time and the money, I strongly recommend you this book.
