This book may be written more for the Harvard elite than those of us who are not familar with Harvard and its practices. That said it was interesting, loved the writing style with the biographies in between. There is alot of life stress in the book which I assume it to prove that Harvard grads are as troubled as the rest of us, however with trust funds, relationships that appear to be "throw away" and opportunities that do not lend themselves in times of desparation, it is as fictional and far fetched as they get. I waited ont he library list, it was worth it because it didn't matter when i got it. It was good, but certainly not great.
