    To be honest, I was prepareed to hate this book. I normally find this type of book to be somewhat condescending and, to be honest, boring. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The book is small, about the size of a paperbook book on it's side. The contents are set up with a picture on the left hand side and the "learning" on the right. So it is very small in terms of the actual words, but very big on content. Let my explain that apparent contradiction.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. The book is small, about the size of a paperbook book on it's side. The contents are set up with a picture on the left hand side and the "learning" on the right. So it is very small in terms of the actual words, but very big on content. Let my explain that apparent contradiction. Each "thing" that you learn is very succinct and very meaningful. So, while the words are few, the content, the learning, the insight into that one topic is huge. Indeed, I was so overwhelmed by the information and the insight it provided that I deliberately did not read the entire book in one sitting. I spaced it out, reading 10 "things" at a bunch and then thinking about what I had read. I write a daily commentary piece at work and there were many items in the book that I could comment on and relate to events at work. In summary, the book was a delight to read and neatly boiled down four years of business school into a book that can fit in your pocket. While it does not replace a business degree it gives you enough knowledge to see how things should be run and to know when you see a badly run business. (Disclaimer: I did receive the book as part of a goodreads giveaway)

    the pictures were that accompanied the text, we're great. upon first glance you could understand right away the message and tip. I personally liked the one on how not to correlate the increase in ice cream sales as a direct influence on the increase in murders the pictures were that accompanied the text, we're great. upon first glance you could understand right away the message and tip.

    I'm pretty sure I will buy this book for every person I hire. It is of course not a thorough study of business school but offers 101 jumping off points to further investigation and knowledge gathering. A quick reminder of the basics and perhaps some new or often forgotten concepts. It can be read cover to cover in about 45 minutes. This is like a coffee table book to keep on one's desk.

    A fun and informative read. Each page summarizes a main idea, formula, or concept in a few lines, making it memorable. Little cartoon drawings add humor and help visualize the concepts. If you're curious about business school, this book is a great way to hone in on some of the key principles. A fun and informative read.

    Reading through this in full or segments allows a lot of concepts to be brought down to earth and front of mind. Regardless where you are at in business having this as reference is huge. It may bring clarity to a challenge or just bring that fresh perspective you need.

    Thanks once again to GoodReads for gifting me this book. I'm really enjoying the opportunity to check out new books which might not otherwise make it into my reading list. Unfortunately I've been unable to find much that is appealing in this book. I'm not sure who the authors intended to comprise the target audience. I do not have a business degree and yet I found only two of the 101 items to be interesting ideas which I hadn't already heard and might find useful.

    A (brief) practical handbook for entrepreneurs or aspiring businessmen. You will be amazed of how the trivia tips given by the authors actually represent basic theory of finance, accounting, management, and other fields that crucial for constructing a business plan.This book also opens up new horizon to those who are sceptical to business school and business graduates. After all, there's nothing so practical as good theory (Kurt Lewin). A (brief) practical handbook for entrepreneurs or aspiring businessmen.

    I like these "101 Things I learned" books, but I've been to business school and to law school, and the things they highlighted from their educations are not what I would have picked. So, in reading these books keep an eye out for other things that you might have learned otherwise, and read with a very jaundiced eye toward what they thought was important.

    There are 101 business truths - explained in a couple of pithy paragraphs each - in this forthcoming book. There's even one or two that might surprise a veteran business exec, such as: Materials are 'free'; it's everything else that costs money.

    Very clear though not what I expected. This should be called "40 things I learned at business school, 10 illustrations and 40 things I learned at every day life."

    Good for new managers, or people starting out in their own business. Nothing earth shattering in there, just good broad coverage of business "stuff" well presented.
