"In short, [ How to Win at the Sport of Business] exceeded...expectations. Short chapters...got right to the point and were not filled with 'stuffing'." ( Huffington Post)

Superb, probably biased but Mark tells it all

Its short, to the point and very high chances that you might finish it in one go.
Good read for anyone looking to improve or anyone who has ever watched Shark Tank.

Best book

best book and Audible does a great job.
Mark Cuban keeps us from Making mistakes. He does not only shares his experience in business but he encourages us to find our passion. Everyone's passion is not a business but they should choose something that exactly represents who they are. Be the best version of yourself and that is one of the most important thing about this book. LOVED IT.

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.

A handful of dated blog posts sold as an audio book. Not much substance.

Interesting perspective from a billionaire

The book is structurally a mess but there are some useful tidbids and motivational messages within the text. Very short, so it's easy to listen to again. Certainly much better business success books out there but helpful in parts.

Side note: Cuban talks about giving the fans what they want (NBA Mavericks owner). A bit hypocritical to then stop playing national anthem at games which nobody wanted apart from himself.

Well worth the small cost

There's more in this book than you might assume for a shorter length piece of work. I'd suggest setting aside the time it takes to listen and taking a few notes of the key points. I'd say it's aimed at those wanting to start their business and it contains a mix of values-driven advice to make you think about your own behaviour and choices, to some very specific "how to" information, if you take time to really listen. This is set in the story of Mark Cuban's own story of his business experience and was well worth the small cost and time in my opinion.

pretty good

This book is quite a good story read. Mark goes over a couple of principles around business and how to succeed. it was good, but it wasn't fantastic. you might learn something from this, and as mark covers, that's what makes the book worth it.
