House of Lies. Martin Kihn

House of Lies. Martin Kihn. How management consultants steal your watch
and tell you the time. 2005. ISBN 0446576565. Kihn was a consultant
in a big five firm and he really lays it out. There is nothing left out,
from the language, the “deck”, the travesty of frequent flyer points,
the so-called high wage of the MBA, getting a job, being ‘counselled
out’ of the job, who really makes the money, who hires these
consultants, what really goes on and does not get done. Its a hoot when
he explains the odds against your son/daughter getting a Harvard MBA and
working for McKinsey, plus who really runs the world!. Easy read, fun,
informative and well worth it.
