Do you know how the HBS students made the school pay for the BMW they rode to school? Or the difference between Sloan, Kellogg, Wharton, and HBS?
I did not until I read this book, Ahead of the Curve: Two Years at Harvard Business School.
To give you some idea, it's written by Philip D Broughton, an Englishman, former Paris correspondence for British The Daily Telegraph, holder of undergraduate degree in Classics from Oxford, who decided to give up journalism for MBA at HBS even without knowing how to run Excel on the first day of the School. In short, a page-turner hilarious account with strong hint of typical Englishmen wits and dark humor on life at one of world's most prestigious B-Schools.
Recommended for summer reading and for those who contemplate to take B-school or live business and corporate life.
