Is not a source of deep insight or detailed methodology. Good advice to start with a study into the big consulting firms

I would definitely recommend this book to someone new trying to break into the world of marketing consulting. Whether it be a small firm or big. Reading through the book was quite easy and even bough it doesn't go deep into detail like how to crack a case. It does provide tips that will definitely help you around the office. As I was reading the book I started realizing how my boss does a lot of the things the book suggests!

Enjoyable, informative read that gives nice preview into a consultant's way of thinking. Lack of more detailed examples would be my only minor grouse.

As an IBM consultant, it's nice to see what the competition has, even though it's a bit outdated.

In terms of the culture that is painted in the book, I would say the two firms are really worlds apart, both in good ways.

There is a lot of negative reviews about the book, however to me, it was enjoyable, taking in the lessons I can practice in my job and learning from history. I look forward to the other two books in the series.

To me this is definitely not as good as Liker's Toyota Way, however, they discuss totally different things. However in terms of describing company culture, Liker is really in depth, I guess kinda like Toyota while Rasiel just scratches the surface, kinda like Mckinsey ;) (JK)

The book gives good insight to the way the McKinsey-ites work. The language is very simple and easy to understand. But, this book is seems more generic as the methods and the style of working which is explained for McKinsey-ites, is more common to any other organization.

A good, but high level, guide for those who want to understand what it takes and what is involved in problem determination and resolution from management consulting.

Well-organized book with a useful albeit cursory look into the world of management consulting as a McKinsey veteran.

Recommended for any one looking to learn more about the field but not for anyone looking for the key to the McKinsey thought process in detail.
