Overall, the book does just like what the author usually does on the website 'Poets and Quants'. It gave me good ideas about how should I evaluate my chance to get into a top MBA program, and whether there is a way to improve my chances comparing to other candidates. Still, I recognize that this whole book is created on a person's perspective alone. It signifies just a person's point of view. So I guess it's really up to your judgement then. Go visit the website to see some samples of his works (and note that a lot of his free works do appeared in the book, too, around 40-50%? or more?), and decide whether his opinions worth your money or not. But for me, it'd very well broadened my perspective yet may be a little expensive so far.
