Informative about structuring deals

There is some substance once you get past the lifestyle and incorporation sections. It's informative about structuring deals, but cursory everywhere else. I liked the bits about (a) making payment, not a signature the binding act, (b) not billing in phases. Looking forward to checking out the online materials.

Awesome Book

This is a must read book. my wife and I did the million dollar consulting collage with Alan back in 2011 in Rhode Island AND HE CHANGED MY LIFE.

This book is a great update.

He is an awesome consultant and an even better teacher.

Read ALL his work.

Really poor - just a ‘filler’ book

I have previously enjoyed Alan Weiss’ books, but I was shocked at how poor this was. Weiss has written this during the Covid pandemic, and it shows, as it is just a ‘filler’ book where I struggled to find even some useful nuggets, as the emphasis throughout was on how he made it, rather than providing useful strategic consulting tips. Give this one a miss, and try something else or one of Weiss’ earlier works.
