Excellent guide to both managing the professional service firm, as well as on how to use books as promotional material,
This review is from: Managing the Professional Service Firm (Paperback)
While not increadibly profound, it does an excellent job of finding the right balance between breadth and depth. All the common pitfalls of managing a professional service firm are addressed in sufficient detail to enable further thinking on the subject, and finding material going more deeply into specific aspects of interest.
I also like how the book is used as a marketing device for his own consulting business. It goes far beyond being a teaser and is a complete product in its own right, while at the same time showing the possibility of more (selling his consulting services) - especially in terms of helping companies actually do what they know is the right thing to do.
Looking forward to Strategy and the Fat Smoker: Doing What's Obvious But Not Easy, which is my next item on the list from Maister.
