Of all the case study books people flog, this is definitely the least stupid by a long way - the advice given is sensible, as opposed to 'life-coach' rubbish that a lot of them peddle! If you do want a case study book, then get this one and don't bother with others.

The frameworks are fine - although it's better to read them just to see the sort of things you should be aware of, as opposed to memorising them. Frankly, if you need to memorise case study frameworks to get through a case interview, you'd make a rubbish consultant and probably should be looking at an alternative career option!

The worked through cases are, for the most part, quite good - although sometimes the 'answer' given isn't very good (ie, the author is showing a slightly sub-par answer, on purpose) - but I found this to be a little counterproductive. The book consists of a lot of 'answered' case problems, which are useful to read through if you're a total novice. At the back, there are also several cases to work through with a friend - they act as the 'interviewer' with all the information about the case, and are given hints about how to lead you through the case, as will happen in a 'real' interview. These are very useful as examples, although they are (of course!) designed to exactly fit one of the frameworks given - real interviews won't be as formulaic.

As a complete beginner, this is good as a starting point.

If you are a complete noob to case interviews it is a good starting point, I am not in love with the framework he proposes it is to complex and using it would make you to mechanical in my opinion. Book however has some good cases to get you started. Conclusion: start here but search for additional material.

I have to say I know 3 people who have used this book. None do well in interviews - and I'm convinced it is because they read this book and are overwhelmed with techniques and styles

Suggestion is fine one style that suits you for figuring out an answer and STICK WITH IT. If you have an instinct for business or prior work experience, go with your gut - don't mess up your mind and your thinking with too many cooks telling you how to make eggs.
