Before I started reading this book, it seemed to me that the author would be stating the obvious by providing me with information that I, as a consulting veteran, had already had learned or developed myself. But I found myself reading every chapter and making mental notes on how I could improve my business.
I disagree with Weiss's assertion on page 134 that it is a waste of time for consultants to self-publish their own books. I am the author and self-publisher of three books, and I have gained prestige, recognition, and money as a result. Despite this, I still admire Weiss's work, and continue to refer to his writings for guidance.
Here is my suggestion for aspiring consultants: 1) read "Million Dollar Consulting" by Alan Weiss, 2) read "How to Acquire Clients" (also by Alan Weiss), and 3) read this book. The combination is a recipe for success for anyone in the consulting business.

BTW, Alan's most valuable book is "How to Write A Proposal That's Accepted Every Time." A close second is "Value Based Fees."
