The Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman - Worth Reading

Quick verdict - it's a good book, and I think it's worth reading.

Josh Kaufman sent me a message on Twitter a bit back, asking if I'd like a review copy of his book. Indeed, I would, I replied, and he sent me a digital copy.

Before I review the book, let me tell you how I read - when I get a nonfiction book that I'm not sure if I'm going to read, I "fastread" it. That's me starting to skim and move quickly, then I slow down and read in depth when something catches my eye, and speed up after I finish that section.

I fastread a lot of books. Especially reading a in-depth reference book on a topic you already know, I think you can get 90% of the lessons of a book in 30% of the time by fastreading. I typically fastread historical backgrounds about eras I'm very familiar with, thoughts on an aspect of business I know, introductions to technologies I'm already familiar with, etc.

My first thought when I was reading The Personal MBA was that this would be a good book to fastread.

He leans over me with his plastic goggles

and his mouth hidden behind white gauze.

I gurgle through the spit and mouthwash.

My tongue, swollen and fat with saliva
