Customer Review

April 24, 2014
As a fellow MBA, I found Micah's book to be a careful analysis of the costs and benefits of getting an MBA, grounded in a very personal reflection of his experience at one of the world's best schools.

This book is especially relevant for what MBA programs term "outlier" candidates - applicants who are or want to become entrepreneurs and startup geeks, students who would like to work in the social impact sectors, applicants outside the normal age distribution, mid-career potentials who don't know what to do with their careers and think an MBA is a socially acceptable pause button, etc.

Unfortunately, these types of "outliers" probably make up 50% of the MBA population - which means all prospectives, current students and alumni, recruiters, donors and school administrators need to take Micah's argument very seriously.

Kudos to Micah for bravely recounting his experience as a detailed "what to avoid" story. Already, I've heard from others that this book is making its way across the MBA underground. I emailed a copy to a friend who is considering applying for B-school and said it's a must read before he signs up for the GMAT courses.

By the way, I downloaded the free PDF directly from Micah's website. Still paying off those loans...
