Good, not exceptional

good, not exceptional
could have been better with examples and more cases too brief and definitely lacks the supporting PDF with the audio book

Succinct and immediately applicable

NOT one of those business books that are 10 times the size they should be.

Immediately applicable to consultants and anyone in project based roles.

No value in leadership development.

Informative overview of consulting

Good concise overview of what the important elements are with respect to business consulting. The fact that these elements are practiced at McKinsey gives them credibility. I thought this was a good overall overview of consulting in general.

Great Resource for all.

I recommend this for all both students and professionals. I certainly do wish I had this proper to B-school. But it is worth reading/listening even at this stage of my career. Gives a little more gas in my tank to travel.

Good, not great.

This book was interesting, but got long in the tooth towards the end. It did not captivate me like other books.
