Everybody should read this book. Yes, it will help you with your business school applications as promised, but the way it will help you is unique and innovative. In addition to the advice around essays, recommenders and the like, Malachuk provides tried and true techniques that will help you lead a more fulfilling life. Her techniques will provide you with more foresight and understanding, and as a direct result your applications will be more honest, convincing and effective. Her resume is impressive to say the least, and her diverse life experiences have enabled her to advise folks from all walks of life and every corner of the earth. If you're applying to business school, read this book. If you're not applying to business school, still read this book.

At first I really loved this book, and it spoke to me as I was grappling with writing Stanford's "What Matters Most to You and Why?" question. You really can't write that essay without doing some serious self reflection, and this book provides some pretty good guidance on how to get started with that and staying positive throughout the process. I also practice yoga, so I get a lot of the metaphors the author uses. If you don't you might have a harder time.

With that said, after the first half of the book I started feeling like the book was getting way, way too new-agey and was in desperate need of a good editor. There's basically two separate books in here. There's the reflection to apply to business school first half, and then there's the less-focused, meditate all the time, life coaching, second half which, in my opinion, could have been cut out and replaced with actual stories of applicants she's worked with and how they positioned their own stories. Like another reviewer has pointed out, there's virtually zero concrete guidance on how to write b-school essays in here, and it's much more conceptual. Her advice is good, but you also can't help but question the author's decision to become a yoga teacher after doing consulting for a few years. It's like uhhhh maybe if you had actually done the reflection you're telling me to do, you wouldn't have racked up $200k worth of debt to become a yoga teacher. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but a more convincing success story might have been that after graduating GSB, the author opened an ultra successful yoga franchise, not just taught class.
