Personal MBA Kindle Books Availability List


Yesterday I introduced the idea of using's newly released Kindle 2 as a tool for the Personal MBA program. We saw that there was a large number of the Personal MBA's 77 Recommended Books List available in Kindle format.

Price Comparisons

Core Print Total Core Kindle Total Supplement Print Total Supplement Kindle Total
$542.09 $406.52 $130.53 $111.02

For the 77 Core Books the total savings if you buy all the Kindle versions instead of the Print version is $135.57. As for the Supplemental books, your savings would be $19.51. It is important to note that there is actually one book currently available in Kindle format which would be cheaper to purchase the Print version. That book is Judgment by Noel Tichy & Warren Bennis.

Below you will find the same list found on The Personal MBA Book list page, but with the additions of whether or not the book is available in Kindle format and if so, the corresponding prices in Print and Kindle formats.
