The first 30-40 minutes seemed to be the author trying to prove his credibility and name drop as many big name American unis and MBA programs that he could get out. From what I can see the remainder is essentially just a bunch of basic tips to running effective teams (the "TEAM FOCUS" model), which might be useful for someone early career, but beyond that... The 'impressive' consulting project that he uses to tie the book together is little more than an unpaid student placement / internship project. He has some background at PwC and McKinsey, but most of his insights seem to be drawn from his subsequent academic career. The other case studies he refers to are so light on detail that I can't help but question their authenticity. I've given it a two rather than a one as it did offer a few insights in to how things are run at McKinsey, although there was nothing ground-breaking. On the whole, I was expecting quite a bit more from someone coming out of the supposed top consulting firm in the world.
