This review is from: Rip-off!: The Scandalous Inside Story of the Management Consulting Money Machine (Paperback)
A wonderfully funny account of the author's time in the world of management consultancy, this provides a warts and all guide to way in which these companies make a huge amount of money for often providing little more than common sense. I've read nearly all of Mr Craig's books and this is a personal favourite. The important point to remember is that a huge proportion of consultants business in the UK comes from the public sector (in other words the tax payer) this book and the excellent follow up (Plundering the Public Sector) really highlight how huge fees spent on consulting is literally pouring tax revenues down the drain. Sadly, Mr Craig really is a prophet without honour in his own land.
