Most people return to business school for an M.B.A. degree to increase their marketability in a highly competitive business environment. How well they achieve their goal depends in large measure on how the business world views the schools they attended. For the first time ever, The Wall Street Journal, the world's most respected business publication, along with Harris Interactive, the organization that created the well-known Harris poll, tells you what corporate recruiters from a wide variety of fields think about the M.B.A. programs they know so intimately. Nearly two years in the making, this is the only major survey that focuses exclusively on the opinions of recruiters -- the buyers of M.B.A. talent. Twenty-seven variables for each school were evaluated, variables that drive a recruiter to hire a particular graduate, such as their company's long-term success with a school's M.B.A. graduates and the students' communication and interpersonal skills, analytical and problem-solving abilities and leadership potential. This groundbreaking volume used the evaluations of more than sixteen hundred recruiters, appraising twenty-seven variables for more than two hundred schools in order to arrive at statistically valid ratings for fifty U.S. and international M.B.A. programs, as well as recruiters' observations on thirty-five more business schools and brief profiles on an additional seventy schools. In addition to the overall rankings, The Wall Street Journal Guide to Business Schools ranks the best public and private schools, the top schools by region, the top large and small schools, the top schools on top attributes, schools that are "hidden gems" and business schools by industry. Also evaluated are schools' academic excellence, the collegiality (and competitiveness) of each school and the most important school attributes. The corporate recruiters even list their personal favorites...and go on the record with extremely candid observations about both the business schools and their graduates. The first guide to business schools published exclusively as an e-book, The Wall Street Journal Guide to Business Schools will prove to be an invaluable resource for prospective students, school faculty and administrators -- and recruiters themselves.

EVER GET THE FEELING that technology is taking over your life and not asking you first? When you've mislaid that important file or can't connect your new camera, do you just want to hurl your computer out of the window? When your kids/friends/grandparents start talking about blogging, podcasting and RSS feeds do you nod as wisely as you can while wrestling with the urge to throw them out of the window too? The bad news is that technology isn't going away. The good news is that, by picking up this book, you're halfway to making it work for you - not against you. Loose Wire is a compilation of Jeremy Wagstaff's most popular weekly columns on personal technology from The Wall Street Journal Asia and the Far Eastern Economic Review. An ordinary person's primer on technology, Loose Wire explains - in jargon-free language and real sentences - what has happened over the past few years, from the rise of the mobile phone to phishing, to where we are heading, as well as hands-on, practical advice about how to enjoy the ride. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Jeremy Wagstaff has worked as a journalist since 1986 - for the BBC, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal and the Far Eastern Economic Review. Most of that time has been spent in Asia, covering uprisings, wars, colonial retreats and the odd (sometimes very odd) press conference. No techie, his interest in technology grew out of a realization that it was changing the way journalists - and the world - work, and that following it would probably be a better idea than fighting it. Since 2000 he has been writing a technology column and has since 2004 appeared regularly on the BBC World Service. He also keeps a blog at www.loosewireblog.com.

*INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER* "Vivid . . . impressive. . . . Splendidly informative."—The New York Times "Suceeds spectacularly."—Science "A tour de force."—Salon Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on Higgs bosons and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions: Where are we? Who are we? Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams ultimately meaningless out there in the void? Do human purpose and meaning fit into a scientific worldview? In short chapters filled with intriguing historical anecdotes, personal asides, and rigorous exposition, readers learn the difference between how the world works at the quantum level, the cosmic level, and the human level—and then how each connects to the other. Carroll's presentation of the principles that have guided the scientific revolution from Darwin and Einstein to the origins of life, consciousness, and the universe is dazzlingly unique. Carroll shows how an avalanche of discoveries in the past few hundred years has changed our world and what really matters to us. Our lives are dwarfed like never before by the immensity of space and time, but they are redeemed by our capacity to comprehend it and give it meaning. The Big Picture is an unprecedented scientific worldview, a tour de force that will sit on shelves alongside the works of Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, Daniel Dennett, and E. O. Wilson for years to come. From the Hardcover edition.
