Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Who can resist picking up a book with a man in a suit sitting on the toilet fist pumping the air? Call me a sucker, but I just love crude humor like this. This book is a quick read, making it perfect for those who simply do not have a lot of time to spend reading. While I do not want my MBA, nor desire one, the art of Buswodmisness seemed right up my alley, so I donned my tinfoil hat, and got to studying. “A leader needs condoms.” This book reads quickly so be prepared to test your knowledge at the end of every chapter…every 90 seconds or so. Don’t sweat the pop quizzes though; you’ll know the correct answers right away. Finance is the study of monkeys right? Seriously though, I couldn’t stop laughing and beneath all of the crazy wackadoo nonsense, you really do learn a basic run down of business, even if in an off the wall way. From macroeconomics to leadership success, you too will be able to run your next business into the ground all while wearing a cheesy smile and giving mad praise to this book’s successful influence on your top notch MBA education! *This book was provided in exchange for an honest review *You can view the original review at San Francisco Book Review
