Excellent as a textbook. I use it to teach a university-level management consulting class. Many of the relevant topics covered provide a very good basis for in-class discussion. It is well written and insightful, presenting an accurate portrayal of what it is to be a management consultant. I especially like the sections scripted by industry veterans. I recommend this book to anyone interested in or considering a career in management consulting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book if you want to join a consulting firm. It is comprehensive and well written - you'll learn about the many types of consulting, the day to day life of professionals, what works and what doesn't in case interviews, and techniques to nail your cases. There's even a robust guide to 15 essential frameworks, and a practice guide with 100 case questions (10 of which have answers). You'll stand out from the crowd if you read this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
