The title of this book underscores the authors' intention to complementand at times refutesuch bestsellers as What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School. Graduates of the Harvard Business School in 1983, the Kellys gently scold the business-school bashers and, in a prospectus-like introduction, assert the value of their book. What follows is a concise summary of the 10 required courses of the school's first-year curriculum. The ins and outs of business policy, marketing, finance and managerial economics are not difficult to follow, although occasionally the prose sounds as if it were borrowed from the school's catalogue. The book is brief about the famous classroom discussions that are supposed to bring the case studies to life. The authors earnestly proclaim that they have been enriched by their business school educationand anyone who decides to buy this book will, no doubt, contribute to their gain. (September)
