I Bet A Consultant Would Not Have Maximized This Synergy

I haven’t read it yet, but there’s a new book called House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn.
What makes this book very intriguing is that Amazon also has an exclusive, tongue-in-cheek 3 minute video overview of the book.
After watching the video, I’m sold on the book–but now I’m gonna try to either go to Borders in my neighborhood and buy it right away, or surf the net to find a lower price. I’m not sure if that’s what Amazon had in mind.

  1. These days I pretty much make all my decisions without a ‘Consultant’.
    I got burned very badly by one.
    Even Lawyers are the first to admit that they’re in it for the money and rarely care about your case.

  2. The Late David Ogilvy says:

    What’s this? Lawyers are nothing more than souless, money-grubbing shysters? Another illusion shattered. . .

  3. I guess I lived under an illustion for a while as my Dad, Older Brother, Ex-wife, Current Wife, and Father-in-law are all lawyers.
