9780141046488: What They Teach You at Harvard Business School: My Two Years Inside the Cauldron of Capitalism

The candid and entertaining memoir What They Teach You at Harvard Business School by Philip Delves Broughton, author of Life's a Pitch, is essential reading for anyone thinking that Harvard Business School is the place to sit out the recession.

What DO they teach you at Harvard Business School?

Graduates at Harvard Business School run many of the world's biggest and most influential banks, companies and countries. But what kind of person does it take to succeed at HBS? And what do they learn there?

Philip Delves Broughton's thrilling and hilarious memoir of his two years at Harvard takes us from first class to graduation, encompassing the case studies, the guest lectures, the Apprentice-style tasks, the booze-luge, the burn-outs and high flyers, as well as all the advice, wisdom and folly he found in this 'factory for unhappy people'.

If you've always wanted to know hoe to get to the top, but wondered what it takes and exactly what it costs, this book will tell you.

'An engaging, insightful portrait of HBS life and an excellent layman's guide' Economist

'A particularly absorbing and entertaining read' Financial Times

'A funny and revealing insider's view. . . his fascination is infectious' Sunday Times

Philip Delves Broughton has served as New York and Paris bureau chief for the Daily Telegraph and led its coverage of the 9/11 attacks on New York. He has also written for the FT, the Wall Street Journal, The Times and Spectator. In 2006, he received an MBA from Harvard Business School. He lives in New York with his wife and two sons.

Recensione:

For anyone thinking of doing an MBA, or indeed anyone who wants to understand how the corporate elite are moulded, this is a must read ( Luke Johnson, chairman of Channel 4)

Anyone considering enrolling will find this an insightful portrait of HBS life ( Economist)

Horrifying and very funny... [an] excellent book ( Wall Street Journal)

A searingly funny account... Hilarious ( Evening Standard)

The result of Delves Broughton's time there is this funny and revealing insider's view, revealing precisely because he is genuinely fascinated by the world of business, and his fascination is infectious ( The Sunday Times)

He sets the scene brilliantly, capturing an essence of HBS that is part cult, part psychological morass, part hothouse... For anyone planning to attend this remarkable institution, Delves Broughton's book is invaluable... A quite brilliant book (Simon Heffer Literary Review)

Delves Broughton sketches out the Harvard curriculum and his fellow travellers with skill and wit... His work is a handy introduction for those who crave the mega-bucks and mega-power that HBS brings many of its graduates. But while it is not the kind of book that non-business readers will naturally reach for, it deserves a broader audience ( The Times)

A useful primer for anyone considering a similar path, or just curious as to how Harvard churns out all those gleaming little masters of the universe ( Washington Post)

A particularly absorbing and entertaining read ( Financial Times)

A cautionary tale for those who believe that the grass - and their future paycheck - would be greener if only they could jump the fence into the rarefied world of the Masters of Business Administration ( New York Times)

Original, clever, funny - and full of insights into one of the most influential insitutions in the world (George Osborne, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer)

What They Teach You...' is a hilarious, perceptive and unflinching account of the strange world of Harvard Business School, its students and the wider world of business which they are set to dominate. It is the Liar's Poker of the MBA set. Destined to become a classic (Albert Read, General Manager of Conde Nast)
