1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money, December 1, 2004
This review is from: Find a Husband After 35 Using What I Learned at Harvard Business School (Hardcover)
Being a guy who read this book, I wanted to add my 2 cents to the debate after having read several of the reviews, including a few five star and one star reviews. My impression, being an MBA grad myself, is that the Greenward believes that you can market yourself (e.g. by creating a superior "brand") the same way Proctor and Gamble markets Crest toothpaste! In my humble opinion, to say that this analogy is utterly RIDICULOUS would be an understatement.

As far as spending money to make yourself look good, there is no doubt that we all would feel better about ourselves and have more self-confidence if we felt that we had done something that made us more physically attractive. Also, I will be the first one to admit that many men (and women) are shallow in that they prefer to date people with good looks rather than a good personality and a warm heart (ideally of course we'd like both but that's quite rare). However, I don't believe that a relationship can last even close to a lifetime if it's based primarily on looks since looks CHANGE with time; let's face it, a woman or a man doesn't look the same at age 40+ as she/he did at age 20. So my advice to anyone considering reading the book is save your money and spend it doing something you enjoy. By the way, don't be impressed and fooled by the "Harvard MBA" label that she peddles; if you ask me, the letter H from HBS (Harvard Business School) should be dropped so that the name is simply BS!

I have to say that she did learn to use the skills that she acquired in B school, since she peddles the book to a target audience who are most likely going to buy the book; people who for whatever reason (may not be their fault at all) haven't yet found the right person, and may be worried that it will never happen (this is the same marketing strategy of the late night infomercials which promise their customers that they'll make millions of $$$ overnight by following the ad's get-rich-quick scheme, and target the people most in need of some extra cash, i.e., the unemployed and elderly).
