Review:

"I''ve run across few people who conceptually ''grok'' how to get things done better than Josh Kaufman."
-David Allen, author of "Getting Things Done"

"File this book under NO EXCUSES. After you''ve read it, you won''t be open to people telling you that you''re not smart enough, not insightful enough, or not learned enough to do work that matters. Josh takes you on a worthwhile tour of the key ideas in business."
-Seth Godin, author of "Linchpin"

"No matter what they tell you, an MBA is not essential. If you combine reading this book with actually trying stuff, you''ll be far ahead in the business game."
-Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor, "Wired", and author of "What Technology Wants"

"A creative, breakthrough approach to business education. I have an MBA from a top business school, and this book helped me understand business in a whole new way."
-Ali Safa vi, executive director of international sales and distribution, The Walt Disney Company

"An absolutely amazing book! I''m highly recommending this to all creative types, for the best overview of the modern business mind-set they need."
-Derek Sivers, founder, CD Baby, sivers.org

"Josh has synthesized the most important topics in business into a book that truly lives up to its title. It''s rare to find complicated concepts explained with such clarity. Highly recommended."
-Ben Casnocha, author of "My Start-Up Life"

"An enterprising and thrifty way to hack business school. This is a fantastic resource for motivated autodidacts looking to get into business."
