5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect means no splash 29 Jun 2006
By Brian M. Rowe - Published on Amazon.com
Flawless Consulting presents a clean slice of what it is to be a consultant. Just as a heaving boulder might fall into water, a consulting engagement has mass and impact on a client. A flawless consultation produces results without a splash. This book addresses what is necessary to do just that. It does a good job of covering the business aspect of consulting which include contracting, meeting management, identifying core issues and of course providing results. It also covers interesting subjects such as handling politics, strategies, ethics, body language and staying focused.

There are sections of the book that include useful, reference quality checklists, rules and guidelines that will not waste space the bookshelf. The book is not slanted toward any particular consulting discipline. Example situations are typically in the area of management consulting. There is little difference in the treatment of an internalized knowledge-worker or external consultant, so the book could apply to nearly everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless Consulting Set is an Excellent Combination 25 Mar 2008
By Jeffrey K. Hansler - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent A-Z guide to consulting. It is open, honest, tested, and makes Peter the 'Godfather of Consult'. What makes this combination so valuable is the insights included that'd probably be missed as a reader unless you'd been consulting for at least a dozen years. Should be part of every business library. This will jump your consultancy career forward at hyperspeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must Read for entry level consultant 29 May 2007
By Dimitri Gauquier - Published on Amazon.com
Great information for all entry level and junior consultants wanting to succeed in the Consulting world. Very clear and defined revealing chapters on all the "Must read" topics. I have over 23 years of experience, and everything a Consultant needs to know is there, spelled out in details, the only missing thing is the suit, shirt and tie.
Additionally, please consider reading the Filedbook & Companion", that is a great complement to the information provided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consult while being true to your core principles 28 Feb 2010
By Concerned Consumer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Peter Block does a great job highlighting essential and proven strategies for delivering substantive consulting that builds relations based on mutual responsibility, accountability, and reward. These resources provide valuable perspectives, processes and points-of-understanding for all consultants.

As a minority consultant I will say that there is an underlying assumption that fails to incorporate the kind of inherent and often invisible prejudices that prohibit the kind of mutual trust and respect necessary from manifesting. It means there are other tactics and steps that must be taken to establish the conditions called for. It also means that many of the objections encountered as a minority consultant cannot be overcome as prescribed, because the root cause(s) of the objections are different.

That said, these books contain awesome information, tools, and resources that add value to any consultant endeavors.
5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant - buy it now! 21 Aug 2008
By S. M. Pratt - Published on Amazon.com
If you're consulting, thinking about consulting or you need re-energising in your consulting role then this is a good read. Absolutely inspiring - I can't tell you why but it is. The journey that the book takes you on is inspiring and motivational. There is direct relevant experience in here that makes you realise you can do it, want to do it and should be doing it. It's easy to read, it's helpful and there is material in there that I currently use on a regular basis as part of my work. Thanks Peter!
