Good book

The book meet my expectations and I was most impressed with the chapter on teams. The narrator does a great job of reading some difficult sections (equations) in a way that makes it understandable.

Should be a PDF attachment

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

It will be a good movie

Any additional comments?

I just start listening and it was not long until I realized something is missing. The Author
refers to graphs and exhibitions that are most likely in the hard copy book, but are not attached to this audio book. I can not rate the whole work overall since I have not completed the book.

Challenging Audio Book

The material covered was a good overall picture of what it entails to select an MBA school and what the MBA curriculum entails. However many topics involve math or other abstract concepts therefore reading portions of the book will be required. Additionally after completing the book one may want to study areas addressed by the book in more detail.

Just ok

Has too much diversity crap in it saying how it's good without giving a reason why. Diversity for diversity sake. Some of the econ in the early part is pretty weak. Too much demand side "keynesian Econ".
