Alongside his devastating critique of management philosophy from Frederick Taylor to Tom Peters, Stewart provides a bitingly funny account of his own days in a management consulting firm. Combining hands-on experience with the theoretical underpinnings of contemporary fads in efficiency improvement, empowerment, and strategy, Stewart knows his stuff, and thus he lays bare how consultants really have done very little for the business of others - while making a killing for themselves.

Listener Opinions

    " A well written book about the management consulting field. Easy to read and digest and does not belabour the points which the author neatly placed in the references section. He spaces his own history between the history of the field in chapters avoiding the pitfalls of some authors to jump even within the same page. "

    " Made some good points about consulting and how they just use generalizations because they aren't the experts in the businesses they consult. But that could be explained in a 30 page book. Not surprising that as a former consultant he was able to stretch it to 300 with filler. "

    " Sad but true...a good liberal education is all you need. "

    " Funny and light read, reminded me of past employment and schooling. First 80% of the book has good reflections. Last section on "Management Gurus" went overboard for my taste. Recommended to anyone with a consulting background and/or MBA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 8/14/2013

    " An easy read about the origins of business consulting interspersed with the author's own history in the consulting business. "

    " Brilliant debunking of "management science". Gives voice to everything you instinctively know is wrong about management and corporate strategy. Should be required reading for every 30-something fast-track company man. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Johan | 3/16/2013

    " Finally a book that puts those management gurus in perspective! "

    " I truly enjoyed reading the book. Matthew provides a great insight into the profession of management consulting and along the way debunk many of the management theories that the consulting world build its fame on. "

    " This book probably wasn't worth the read. I expected some revelatory information, but I found instead a bitter, snide philosophy student. "
