In the upcoming days and weeks I will apply for a job at some of the major strategy consultants. To do so, I have to pass some case interviews. To ace them, you need practice – a lot of practice. I ordered one of the (self-proclaimed) case interview bibles: Case in Point, written by Marc P. Cosentino. I had to pay about 25 euro for it, and a signifcant amount of shipping costs.
Today I received it. This book is supposed to give me more confidence. But then, I looked at the cover (see picture below).
So, apparently, proofreading the cover was too much to ask. And I paid (way) over 25 euro for this book.
Later today I went to my favourite bookshop. The result is shown below. The price? 28 euro. For all of them.
