Reviews

"More than a master of business administration, Mark Albion offers his read- ers an advanced degree in the meaning of life. His MBA is a Master of Blessed Attitude, and it suggests a course of personal development that will give every- one more than money--it will give them purpose, direction, and hope." --Alan M. Webber, former editorial director and managing editor, Harvard Business Review "Dr. Albion has developed the tools for helping us find our way in our professional lives. While this book is written for MBAs, it will speak to anyone who has struggled to find more meaning in his or her career. A compelling writer, Dr. Albion is open about himself, admits his mistakes, and through his own telling of how he learned from them, teaches us how to recognize ours and change the course of our lives for the better." --Phoebe Higgins, Dominican University of California, MBA, 2007 "The basic messages of the book summon up, and resonate with, my own experiences as an MBA student, and I realize that I would have been one of the people this book was intended for. I'm reminded of some of the lessons I've learned the hard way since leaving my MBA program. Not only does More Than Money invite us to question how success is really best measured, but it also offers some practical tools for finding a more holistic return on an MBA investment." --David Wood, Fisher Graduate School, Monterey Institute, MBA, 1993 "Before getting an MBA, read More Than Money. This book revolutionizes business school education and will help any MBA student get more out of school. In his special way, Dr. Mark leads you to define first what you want to do with your life. He does so by guiding you not with answers but with crucial questions that help you connect with who you are and what you wanted as a child but deemed impossible. Now it is possible." --Anton Arapetyan, Lviv (Ukraine) University MBA, 2006, Lviv Business School "More Than Money reaffirms that as human beings we first need to love and be loved--before we are MBAs. Our MBA degrees, our positions, money, and assets are tools that can help us to love. For when all is said and done, on our deathbeds, love is the only thing that will have mattered. Thank you, Dr. Mark, for being that voice that speaks to our spirits, not just our heads." --Tolulope Ilesanmi, McGill University, MBA, 2005 "This book has me thinking in a very serious way about my life, my place in the world, and how my strengths and talents can be of service. It has me remember- ing the best times at work and how good it felt to be working together toward common objectives with a common purpose and with passion. I'd like to find that again. More Than Money is really going to help me focus on doing so." --Douglas Hammer, New York University, Stern School of Business, MBA, 1999 "We have all heard stories of business school graduates who took decades to realize the careers they chose right out of school were the wrong ones for them. Benefit from the teachings in this book and start building yourself a sustainable career now, so you don't have to undo your mistakes later." --Erika Haas, Stanford Graduate School of Business, MBA, 1998
