Not Worth the Money 30 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found Peter Sam's book to be a tremendous disappointment. The book itself is 300 pages long with a nice glossy cover and a table of contents that promises to get into all sorts of interesting things. The book did not measure up, however, to my expectations.
Well over half of the book is devoted to a series of appendices with outdated information that appears to be taken out of old directories or websites. And the insights contained in the body of the book are few and far between. Most of the suggestions are fairly superficial and obvious (e.g., establish networks).
I won't buy this book again, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Very disappointing 18 April 2000
By G BALAMURUGAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought the book thinking that it would provide useful guides in international environmental consultancy. But the book contained very little useful information, plenty of outdated information, and large chunks of the text are superficial that anyone already in the consulting business would already know. There are some factual erros in the text and some stereotyped description of people and business in developing countries. The book is a waste of my money.
