The Ten Day MBA by Steven Silbiger

After spending 5 years on a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and 5 more on a master's in Computer Science, I swore that I would never set foot on a college campus again. As I moved into leadership roles, I found myself becoming more and more immersed in the crazy world of business management. I began to wonder if I needed a Master's of Business Administration (MBA) degree to keep moving up the ranks. This book has been a life-saver for me. The author has distilled the core topics from the curriculums of America's top business schools into ten easily digestible chapters: Marketing, Ethics, Accounting, Organizational Behavior, Quantitative Analysis, Finance, Operations, Economics, Strategy, and MBA Mini-Courses. An MBA may still be in my future at some point, but for now this book has equipped me with a fundamental understanding of business concepts and terminology. I've owned this book for over ten years now and still refer to it once or twice a year. Highly recommended.

Very good, solid information. Future editions featuring more updated graphics and color would really enhance understanding. Text is also quite dry, but not annoyingly so. Great summary for non-MBA's.
