Book Review: The Portable MBA in Strategy

The positives:

* an impressive casting: the chapters are mostly written by professors from top business schools (a great MBA feeling)
* the academic content is nicely organised. A plus: the graphs & tables which help to visualize/summarize the content
* useful/practical book for entrepreneurs: I am launching my business and it has allowed me to re-study some aspects of my strategy (and mostly validate it)

The negative:

* if you have a bachelor in business (as I do with a strategy course), sometimes you will feel reviewing, not learning. But it is worth to re-view some points (in depth) while learning new aspects of business strategy Conclusion: I highly recommend this book
