    I recently ordered the book 'What they teach you at Harvard Business School' by Philip Delves Broughton and would like to hear from anyone who has read it.

    I'm not an avid reader, only really read books that I'm really interested in. Can anyone give me just an overall rating (without ruining the book) and tell me if you you need to know a lot about business to understand it. I literally have never studied anything related to it.

    Thanks!

    I haven't read it myself. What I would say is, don't be put off just because you're not an expert in Business. Not everybody can relate to every single book they read - Plenty of people adore Shakespeare, but some of the issues are certainly not relevant today. I've read a book about the hardships of living in Ireland, which discusses a lot of history and Irish politics - I don't have a clue about any of that! But that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the story - books help develop our knowledge and teach us things. You may learn a thing or two by reading this book

    I'm actually 1/3 of the way through it and although i don't really get all the business/finance jargon it's a great read. I'm really glad I got this book haha !
