Praise for The McKinsey Way:

"Apt to become the reference book on business management. With the help of The McKinsey Way, managers can approach issues they face as if they had a McKinsey expert beside them. It will certainly help those of use who cannot afford McKinsey!"Mord Weisler, Chairman, PRI Automation, Inc

It's the parts about having a secretary, how important it is to be organized so your wife don't find out you're cheating on her, the implication of having to be a man to succeed at McKinsey that I don't like.
Having the book digital and in out Kindles maybe someone new at McKinsey would be able to update the book and bring it to the 21st century.
Most of the content is great, but couldn't shake this feeling of reading something Don Draper wrote in the 60's the entire time.
Reader beware: this book was written in 1999. Methodologies and tools have changed dramatically and I do not believe there has been any revisions/new editions.
I would not recommend this book to experienced consultants, but if you are in college and considering consulting then this could be a great introductory text.
The style of the book is a little frivolous for my liking in places. It could do with a decent editor. Grammatical mistakes abound and some of the content could do with it's own medicine - MECE. Waffle and padding abound.
In summary: it's worth reading, but take note that the author only spent 3 years at McKinsey and, based on an average engagement length of 6 months, that means about 6 engagements (assuming one engagement at a time). Is that enough to qualify as an authority on the Firm & its "way"? And then there's this constant reference to one consultant named McDermott - shouldn't he just have written the book himself?
