DESCRIPTION :

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
