David to antony (#3)

Bit harsh. Though his second book (really an expanded version of the first, The McKinsey Mind) was an improvement.

It does give a fairly accurate description of some of the basics of an problem solving approach for unstructured issues. It makes a pretty good piece of light relief to go alongside Minto.

Of course I am sure our commentators above (Partners at McKinsey everyone) have nothing to learn. When I was starting out as a strat consultant it certainly helped clue me in - which is not to say of course that it should be read uncritically.

Look its a s*t book. It is literally a waste of time and money. He just goes on abt chinese take aways. You don't need to work at Mcckinsey to write such a book!
