GREAT book!

I'm generally a fan of the For Dummies and For Idiots books because they are the equivalent of a not-very deep but typically broad literature review on a topic.
This one is below average in that it tries too hard to consider all the different types of consulting someone might do, instead of focusing on a more limited range. A much much better book for someone considering this one is The Business of Consulting by Elayne Biech.

This book definitely helped me back when I began consulting. Now, I probably have most of this content committed to memory.
