Review by: Kimberly Schimmel on March 13, 2014 :
This is an absolute must-read book for anyone considering borrowing big bucks for an MBA. Merrick goes back to what I recognize as an ancient Biblical principle called "counting the cost." One would think business students would be the first to apply cost-benefit analysis to graduate school, but the fact that they don't speaks to just how effectively MBS programs have marketed themselves. Arm yourselves with the facts, via this great book, before you decide whether an MBA is a viable investment or a crap shoot!
