It's quite clear from the outset that this book wasn't designed to deliver actual value to the read - but rather to get you onto the author's email list. In the kindle copy of the book, there are continual links to his 'free online resources' => and given the poor quality of how the book is written, it leaves me with little confidence that the resources will be of much if any value.
It's also quite obvious that the author just makes up acronyms to suit the 'flow' of the book => even when some of the words in the acronyms are out of place and don't make sense. In one chapter alone, the reader is supposedly meant to remember the 6 advantages of an ideal catalyst, the 7 sources of INGRESS, the 8 criteria to find a potential CATALYST, and the 7 qualification criteria to assess each catalyst.
Despite Michael suggesting a consulting is very much about doing the right thing by the client, in this instance, it seems his motives are mostly self-serving so as to put you on his autoresponder list as a future sale. In fact, in many ways, it seems like Michael has gone to one of those 'write a book and become a key person of influence' programs => and he has churned out a book with a catchy title (and a URL that was available) so as to help with his own positioning and perception of being a 'key person of influence' or 'authority' or 'thought leader' even though there's not a great deal of richness or substance to the topic.
The best thing about this book is the fact it has been written - which is testament to those courses which help people churn out books regardless of quality. The goal now for Michael - and for those people who lead such courses is to create something of substance. Good luck with that!
