Ever since those icons of rugged individualism, the Lone Ranger and Tonto, rode into Western towns at the first sign of distress, consultants have been offering a unique and valuable service to those in need. As downsizing corporations continue to ``outsource'' work to independent contractors, an increasing number of refugees from business, government, and academia are utilizing their talents as independent consultants. In contrast to the typical how-to-get-rich books, consultant Brown, himself a former Fortune 500 middle manager, provides a realistic and balanced description of the risks and rewards of this work. Writing in a fluent and engaging style, Brown intersperses information and advice with real-life profiles of consultants who have successfully applied these principles. Informative, thorough, and motivational, this is recommended for individuals contemplating the transition from employee to consultant.-- Alan Farber, Northern Illinois Univ., Dekalb
