Duration: 11 hours 40 minutes

Summary:

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.

"Filled with fascinating insider anecdotes. This wry, absorbing book will enlighten executives about the value consultants actually bring to their clients."-Publishers Weekly
