John Cousins


I am the author of Patent It Yourself!, Negotiation Communication Nation, Learn Accounting Fast!Managing and Leading Organizations and PeopleReading and Understanding Financial Statements, MBA ASAP, and nine other books. I am the founder of MBA ASAP which can be found at, an "online business education community" chock full of business skills and knowledge on the web.

Previously, I was CEO of a biotech company developing innovative cancer diagnostics. I took two companies public and I was the CFO of several public companies for 15 years. For the past decade I have also been teaching business classes at a number of universities and colleges.

Writing these books and creating these courses has been a wonderful opportunity to gather and organize my thoughts and experiences and share them. I have an electronics degree from MIT, a BA from Boston University and an MBA from Wharton.
