Mediocre **** (4 out of 10)

Well, let's put one thing to rest immediately, we're really talking about 10 pages as a minimum, so the title is a bit misleading.

Secondly, the audience seems to be high-school graduates that is struggling with understanding the concept of "strategy" in a small business. And for this audience it is probably very well suited. But for any serious study of strategy or practical use at medium to large companies, this is mediocre at best, and sometimes feels a bit infantile.

You may skip this book without fear of missing out of any knowledge.
