The McKinsey Way

The McKinsey Way


If you're someone looking to become a consultant or work in business, check this book out for a fun weekend read.

In The McKinsey Way, Ethan Rasiel gives insight with how some of the world’s top problem solvers think. Written almost 20 years ago, I find that the lessons in The McKinsey Way’s still ring true today.

Consultants themselves are faced with a hard job. They enter businesses that may be foreign to them, learn as fast as they can, and present solutions that not even industry experts might not have seen. Not easy at all!

The book itself is short, concise, and easy to read. Rasiel doesn't go too deep into the details to bore you and tells you enough to draw lessons and interest from. A great foundation to build your problem-solving skills on. Even if you aren’t in the field of business, you'll find valuable lessons to apply to your own life.
