Reviewers say.

"The Personal MBA is the single best business book I’ve read. Most books focus on a single part of business in isolation, but The Personal MBA walks you through every moving part, and gives you the tools to understand how those parts work together to create a complete system."

AMY HOY, founder of Noko and Stacking the Bricks

"The only business book I recommend. Josh somehow condenses an entire library of crucial knowledge into a short book that’s eminently readable, so you can spend less time reading and more time building your business. It’s perfect for both providing an overview and serving as a reference. I revisit The Personal MBA more than any other book on my shelf."

COURTLAND ALLEN, co-founder of Indiehackers.com

"I read The Personal MBA cover to cover when it was first released and it had a major impact on how I view business. It’s incredible how Josh was able to distill hundreds of books and hundreds of years of business knowledge into this succinct and elegant tome."

ROB WALLING, co-founder of MicroConf and bestselling author of Start Small, Stay Small

"The title could have been How to be an All-Around Optimized and Awesome Human Being. I think anyone and everyone living in our modern world would be well-served by reading this book. I got the Audible edition, bought the Kindle edition to read along with, and just ordered the print copy so I can make lots of notes and refer to it often. If buying the same book three times isn’t compelling evidence of this book’s value, then I don’ t know what is! Read it. Now."

ADAM, reviewer on Amazon.com

"No matter what they tell you, an MBA is not essential for landing or handling a good business job. If you combine reading this book with actually trying stuff, you’ll be far ahead in the business game."

KEVIN KELLY, founding executive editor of Wired & author of What Technology Wants

Read more about Liquidity, Markets and Trading in Action

This open access book addresses four standard business school subjects: microeconomics, macroeconomics, finance and information systems as they relate to trading, liquidity, and market structure. It provides a detailed examination of the impact of trading costs and other impediments of trading that the authors call “frictions”. It also presents an interactive simulation model of equity market trading, TraderEx, that enables students to implement trading decisions in different market scenarios and structures. Addressing these topics shines a bright light on how a real-world financial market operates, and the simulation provides students with an experiential learning opportunity that is informative and fun.
