Albion, as part of his life's work, has provided readers with a much needed reminder that money can never be an end goal, but only a means to an end. The purpose and use of money is a far more important thing to work toward, and serious contemplation of those end goals is a much needed change for many business students, both graduate and undergraduate. Like so many people, it took a life and death situation to awaken Albion to this "true north" principle. Now he has made that the purpose of the ...more

This is one of 3 books that I read before starting out on my MBA. This is a good book and written with all the right intentions.

However, it failed to make an impact on me just because I'd read "How will you measure your life?" by Clayton Christensen - which, I found more more comprehensive in terms of thinking about your impact on the world.

3. What can you do? creating values, keep risk low, don't defer your life plan
4. Where are you going? purpose is mo

Good read for me, particularly at this point in my life/career. It's a relatively short book (~100 pages), but it provides a lot of good food for thought. I'm planning to revisit the ideas and questions that resonate with me the most in the near future, taking my time to think and write about some of the more relevant ones.

Great book for MBAs who are ready to reflect on career choices...to stop following money as the top priority. Mark's experiences as a Harvard MBA professor gave him insight into thousands of student's minds. He does a great job at making you think about what you really want out of life.

Any other future MBA's out there still trying to figure out what to do with their careers? This book isn't the answer, but poses some good questions for you to consider, and may give you some clarity around what to do next.
