'In this moment, we need leaders more than ever. But, as Alicia McKay helps us understand, waiting two years for a piece of paper isn't required to make a difference. Start where you are and start now.'Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing
'Credit belongs to Alicia because she is actually in the arena. Read this book if you want a down-to-earth, what-really-works guide to leadership.'Greg McKeown, author of Essentialism
'McKay is right - you truly do not need an MBA or even an undergrad degree to succeed. What you do need is a structured way to think about building your career, and a good network. This book offers you an approach to building both that is practical and accessible. Most importantly, it's a fun read."Kim Scott, author of Just Work and Radical Candor
'In You Don't Need An MBA, Alicia has deconstructed leadership to the point where it's easy to understand and action. Managers no longer have the excuse of not knowing how to step up - instead, they now have a choice. Read this book and grow... or don't, and become slowly irrelevant. It should be an easy choice to make.'Colin D. Ellis, author of Culture Hacks
'If you want to master leadership and strategy, definitely don't do an MBA. Better to do what Alicia has done and spend two decades deeply immersed in the topic. Sift through the research; read hundreds of books, articles and white papers; think deeply on the topic, speak about it, write about it and teach it. In short, dedicate your life to it. Or, if you haven't got two decades, read this book. It has that very rare elegance and simplicity that only come on the other side of deep thought and hard work. And, as you would expect from Alicia, it's the antithesis of an MBA... accessible, quirky, moving, funny and, above all, practical and applicable. If you are in leadership, or aspire to be, this book should be at the very top of your list of recommended reading.'Peter Cook, founder of The Expert Business
