Review: BOTTOM LINE:
More of the same information about Warren Buffett. We all know his story and his investment style. We know about his blockbuster deals in retrospect. Trying to dupicate his success; THAT's the tricky part! Read more
Review: Chris Guillebeau is back with a new book on managing your career. After he wrote about how to live the life that we want (The Art of Non-Conformity), how to start the business of our dreams (The $100 Startup), and how to create and chase our dreams (The Happiness of Pursuit); he is now tackling how to create the career of your dreams.

Review: I purchased the book in-person at a book signing event in NYC and have been following Uncle Jason for the last 3-4 years through his podcast.

I had high hope because I heard of this book from Dan Miller, but it proved to be another fly-by-night pitchman selling his motivational wares. Read more
Review: This book is great! The best and most complete for case interview preparation available.
I got a Mckinsey offer and used it to prepare for the interviews.
But my advice is that If you want to get into the top consulting firms, you have to do more than just reading it, because everyone who is trying to get into the Top reads it, so you should, as well, look for other sources of preparation such as practicing cases with friends, talk to people who have been through the process, read ...
