This book echoes what I’ve tried to build into my teams throughout my career: our work is serious, but our jobs make up a big part of our lives, so we’ve got to keep laughing.
I’ve managed to survive in business without an MBA, but this book makes me wish I had gotten one. (Not really, but Paul asked me to write that.)
Sometimes biting. Sometimes satiric. Frequently downright funny. Paul Ollinger provides solid MBA admissions advice as well as a wry and amusing perspective on the MBA experience and value proposition. This book is a worthy addition to an MBA applicant’s bookshelf.
Paul’s writing is funny and sometimes bizarre, but he knows what he’s talking about. If you’re thinking about applying to business school, you have to read this book.
