Silbiger, who is both an MBA and a CPA, aims to give the reader 40 percent of a two-year MBA program in ten days–a chapter per day. Whether or not one agrees with his premise, this book will prove to be a handy desk reference for potential and current MBAs, along with business people in general. Written in a clear and lively style, the ten chapters provide a basic framework for the essential business courses: marketing, ethics, accounting, organizational behavior, quantitative analysis, finance, operations, economics, and strategy. Each chapter outlines the topics to be covered and ends with “key takeaways”–the buzzwords and theories the text has described–defined in a line or two. A useful lexicon of abbreviations leads the reader back to the explanation of each concept.
