Great book, in my opinion better than the first one (Secrets of Consulting)

This book is the sequel to the Secrets of Consulting book. It follows the same style of writing with funny anecdotes and examples. There are some good insights, not just for consulting, but you would benefit even more if you're already an experienced consultant. I don't give 5-star, cause unlike the first book, there are sections that I found difficult to relate to and less interesting. Nevertheless, I find that the book is easy to read and offers wisdom for consulting purposes.

Not at all as strong as the first book. Still a good and light read. No remorse about spending time with this one.

More Secrets of Consulting by Gerald Weinberg is the followup to The Secrets of Consulting. Like its predecessor it is about the tricks of the trade of consulting.

In More Secrets of Consulting, Weinberg turns the gaze from the external and how a consultant can act into the internal and how one can improve themselves. As a result the book covers the toolkit that Weinberg believes all consultants should have. Some of these are the ability to say clearly yes and no, be courageous, curiosity and so

Parts of the book feel like self-help with generic principles.
