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.

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.

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.

Great content! But disappointed in no Mark!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, As others have said... worth the 2 hrs of listen for the unique perspective, despite the narration.

How could the performance have been better?

This book would have been so MUCH better for me if Mark had actually taken the time to narrate his own content. That really was the bummer of this audiobook. It was very hard to listen to the narrater over enunciate every sentence and be imaging how Mr. Cuban would be telling his own stories.
