Short yes, but I've gained a few things from it:)

*I paid $7CAD*

-It was short yes, but I wanted more!

-I did gain life lasting help from it and I listened to it twice, which makes it worth my $7 spent.

~I liked the 1950's style Leave it to Beaver style reading:)

+
If you're in any business of any kind and can find even 1 thing useful from this 2hr listen, then it was worth it.

-
I feel like anything more then $7 for this is too much money, even a bit less.

some harsh truths but I needed to hear them.

loved the book and how straight to the point it is. Brutally honest. I wish he wrote more books.

Short but still worth it.

I wish it were longer, as I'm sure everyone that reads this book wishes as well too. Despite its short run time, it's still worth it to have in your collection. Marc Cuban is a winner. You'll want to hear from him.

Definetly worth 2 hours of your life

What did you love best about How to Win at the Sport of Business?

I love the fact that Mark was just a normal guy who turned it around to become a billionaire.

Which scene was your favorite?

When he got fired for not being at his place of employment while he was closing on a deal. It's what started his Maverick career.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes...this book is a one sitting multiple listen to book.

Short and precise.

Motivational words from a man who knows what he's talking about. If you are starting a business or you are developing one, this is worth a listen.

Real talk. Real motivation.

Mark Cuban is disorganized!? There's hope for me! Mark's stories and perspectives give me the renewed hope I need to keep moving forward toward my goals. This is my 2nd time reading and I'll read again next time I'm feeling beat up or discouraged.

Mark absolutely nailed it

This book is the hack to true performance and productivity. It's a peek into the mind of Cuban and how he views running a lifestyle that deserves his passion and persistence to keep up with his competitiveness.

Another bombastic billionaire

Just another empty self help book that I was hoping this would not be. Lots of self congratulation and moral posturing disguised as humility. "I worked so hard and always did the right thing" kinda stuff.

Almost nothing of value that will help you in this book which means the contents are grossly misrepresented by the title. Starts to get irritating only halfway through this little book bc of how empty his rhetoric is that I honestly can't tell if this 2 hour ego pamphlet was a cash grab or a bid to attach likable personality traits to himself to manipulate public perception of himself.

Greatness example

This is a great example of how a billionaire thinks, not a million but billions. Always aim for the best, always enjoy competition!

Mark Cuban at his best | Simple, yet powerful

Loved how he picked his best of the best ideas and showered them to us.
And like he says...you need to know how to sell.
