Is this blue book more valuable than a business degree?

Most people enter their professional careers not understanding how to grow a business. At times, this makes them feel lost, or worse, like a fraud pretending to know what they’re doing.

It’s hard to be successful without a clear understanding of how business works. These 60 daily readings are crucial for any professional or business owner who wants to take their career to the next level.

New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Donald Miller knows that business is more than just a good idea made profitable – it’s a system of unspoken rules, rarely taught by MBA schools. If you are attempting to profitably grow your business or career, you need elite business knowledge—knowledge that creates tangible value.

Even if you had the time, access, or money to attend a Top 20 business school, you would still be missing the practical knowledge that propels the best and brightest forward. However, there is another way to achieve this insider skill development, which can both drastically improve your career earnings and the satisfaction of achieving your goals.

Donald Miller learned how to rise to the top using the principles he shares in this book. He wrote Business Made Simple to teach others what it takes to grow your career and create a company that is healthy and profitable.

The Reviews

One of the reviews calling this book clickbait made me chuckle. Every book is clickbait. The author wants you to seek them out whether it be fiction or non-fiction. That is the works in which we live. Authors need a platform.In this case, yes, Donald Miller wants your email address. In return you receive coaching videos. You can of course sign up for more. That isn’t necessary.I don’t know Miller; don’t need to. I only know his books, his podcast, and his videos challenge my thinking. I have been in business for over 30 years. I do not have the hubris to think I can’t learn more from someone trying a new approach.My recommendation is to buy the book. The multilayered approach is a great way to bring the lessons to a new level. In fact, buy the book for key members and members of your team with growth potential.Business can be boiled down to some key lessons to get people moving in the right direction. I think that is what Miller is trying to accomplish. It won’t make me stop reading Lencioni, Collins, or Drucker. It will enhance it.

Disappointing. This book does not give you any masterful information with which you are able to readily apply to your daily life. It is a great book for an absolute beginner in business to gain understanding of concepts and business practices. It gives general overviews of many aspects of business which is useful for beginners but not for someone already in the field. The title says master the skills but provide you with nothing to actually master. For example in the section regarding creating a sales funnel the book says it will teach you how to create a sales funnel that you can use but then only gives you general overview definitions of the different aspects of the sales funnel. It never teaches you how to actually create one and put it into practice. It’s like this throughout the book. Again, if you’re an absolute beginner this book has a very good understandable way of explaining business concepts so that you can learn how things work too small degree. But if you want to actually use implementable tactics from this book you will be left lacking. I have to say I was greatly disappointed in this book as the title and description seems more like Clickbait than actual representative of the information provided in the book. I really don’t like being misled when I pick up a book. I pick it up because I want to learn information obtained within. When the promises of the book or not delivered within it is a complete waste of my time to even attempt to read this book. If you were looking for business tactics to implementDon’t waste your time with this book. If you are completely new to the business world I need to have an overview of different aspects of business and this would be a good read for you. I can’t recommend it over because I don’t like the misleading marketing related to this book. I don’t recommend products that miss lead anyone just to make money.

If you want to know what the pros know, this is the book for you. 60 bite-sized lessons — each with an accompanying video — will equip you with the knowledge you need to grow your business.The format makes it easy to incorporate the reading and video into your morning routine. And as someone with decades of business experience, I can tell you the information presented is solid and practical.Donald Miller’s Style is conversational, so the experience is like being coached or mentored by a wise friend. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.I have already ordered multiple copies for business associates at every career stage. This will undoubtedly be my most-gifted book this year — and likely next year as well.

We've all read books made up of 12 different 5 point plans that are all "absolutely necessary" if you ever want to experience an ounce of success. And then the next book we read has a totally different set of plans that are also mandatory.It's impossible to keep track, and it's doubtful they all really work.This book gives you a plan that works. Sound advice, clearly explained, with actionable steps.Thanks again, Donald Miller!

This book is truly the A to Z of what you truly need to know to succeed in business, not just grow it. You will love the easy way he explains and teaches the lessons. He starts with character and the right stuff you need to know to get on the right track. No book is for everyone. But this book is for most of you who want to truly make it in business and life.

Too simplistic and basic. This book is written for high schoolers or university students at best. Yet it was not advertised as such((. Confuse and you lose.Too bad the return window closed long before I got it on my Kindle.

Excellent book and bonus videos. If you have been in business for a week or all of your life, there is still tons of information you can use in these books. You are reading this review to see if this book is worthy of your time. Do yourself one of the best things you could do this year --- buy this book. Then watch the videos. Then read and watch again over a few months so the info sinks in.Not only will this help your business (owner or budding employee) it will help your communication skills on every level.See you at the bank!

I can highly recommend this book for any business owner, experienced or new. It's a great book but when you add the free videos that go with the book you realize it's a stellar deal! Very clear and easy to understand. Business principles broken down into simple terms - no "business jargon." It's a wonderful resource recommended to me by a business professional I trust and respect. He was right on in his recommendation. I love that the videos are delivered to my inbox every morning, and will be for 60 days. Become a value driven professional by reading this book, watching the videos, and putting his principles and ideas into practice. You will bring a lot more to the table with this knowledge.
