Confessions of a Management Consultant turned CEO is like a stroll through a gallery of fine art. The impact builds gradually but inexorably. At first you will be aware of a message that is easy, friendly, and almost obvious. By the time you have finished reading, however, you know that something significant has occurred in your mind and you don't know quite how it happened.
When I started reading this book, I assumed it was just another CEO who wanted to be remembered. I was surprised that it was an extremely easy read, and that it could be read streaight-off or by jumping around. But at the start I wasn't very impressed. But after a while, I started to respect the narrator (even if I didn't always agree with her), and in the end, I have to say that this is a remarkable book, as it manages to get you thinking, without you even noticing (and I am a stone-hard cynic, as you all know).
It is well worth the read, and I would even recommend it to new senior managers, as it raises the right questions.
