Read an Excerpt

I can't remember anything on my resume. Oh my God, I've gone blank what am I doing here? My pulse is racing, my throat is tight, and I'm sweating. Move out of my way, I have to get out of here!

After 20 minutes, my nerves finally begin to calm (which would have been great if the interview hadn't finished in 10).

The interviewer concludes with, "How do you want to be remembered by your classmates?" Remembered?

Because this program will surely be the death of me?

He hands me his card when we finish. "Call me if you have any questions."

The interview is over.

Over?

I am numb as I leave his office, stunned that the moment I have worked a lifetime for is now history. Wait! When he said, "It's over," was he referring to the interview or to my future in business?

The Blushing MBA is a funny, candid chronicle of one woman's adventure inside an Ivy League business school. It's an inspirational tribute to college, graduate school, and to anyone who has ever dared to enter the wild world of business.

The author's sense of humor, her witty charm and her excitment in sharing her life experiences was very appreciated! You have no doubt in your mind while reading this book that the author was nothing but honest when telling the good and the bad about her Ivy league MBA experience. I would recommend this book to anyone - male or female. It's eye opening, humorous and a fantastic read!

I've been considering business school for some time... this is a candid, witty look at what life is really like in the Ivy League from a WOMAN'S perspective. How refreshing! This should be mandatory for all college women.

The only book on the market that provides a women's point of view of business school. A non-stop roller coaster ride - shows the author's testament to personal resilience and survival in the halls of Ivy League America. Journalistic honesty and straightforward - this is a must read!!

Thank the author for her honesty, humor and talent. I loved it! I absolutely loved it. I was surprised by the honesty of the story and I believe it will be a helpful tool for women (and men) to better cope with the strain, self-doubt and confusion that b-school makes people face. At least the human ones! I also personally have a better appreciation of what people put themselves through to achieve their goals. And I also appreciate how on MBA can be applied to all ventures - from altruistic to strictly profit based endeavors. I think as a result of reading The Blushing MBA a wider range of women will consider getting their MBA's. They can use them as a force for good! And I hope that she finds a large market for her book because it ought to be read

This book is a must read for anyone considering business school but most importantly for women. This is the first book that I have seen which is written by a FEMALE MBA specifically for WOMEN considering graduate school. All of the other books are written by men, for men. It's a surprisingly honest description of life at business school (I graduated from an Ivy leauge MBA program so I know). You don't get this kind of honesty in other MBA books. Plus it is truly laugh-out-loud funny. It takes you through the real high and lows and all of the 'secrets' in between. I highly recommend this book to any woman who is either in college or already in a business career and considering graduate school or an MBA. Enjoy this great book!
