"A fascinating account of the rise of McKinsey. If you want to know what it is about the culture of the firm that sets it apart and has made it so successful, read this book."--Liaquat Ahamed, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lords of Finance "In his superb examination of one of the most powerful, secretive, and least understood organizations on the planet, Duff McDonald finally solves the mystery, in elegant prose, of how McKinsey can be well known without anyone knowing anything about it. Thanks to McDonald, now we do."--William D. Cohan, bestselling author of The Last Tycoons, House of Cards, and Money and Power "McDonald has written the definitive history of McKinsey, and through McKinsey of the entire multibillion-dollar industry that is management consulting. It's a heartbreaking tale of wasted talent."--Felix Salmon, finance blogger, Reuters "I read it. It's a good book."--Dominic Barton "In this highly readable history, Duff McDonald brings us deep inside one of the smartest and most important firms doing business today - a place where no other journalist has taken us before. With his straightforward storytelling and thoughtful analysis, McDonald demystifies the secrets behind McKinsey's successes and offers concrete lessons on changing companies and practices for the better."--Jamie Dimon "Timely.... A fast-paced account of a key business institution, its deeds and misdeeds."--Kirkus Reviews "Duff McDonald's new book about the people who built McKinsey, the consulting firm that has quietly influenced American business for decades, explains the firm's tremendous accomplishments--and its equally stunning failures. As McDonald shows, the firm's greatest success may well be itself. This is critical reading for anyone who wants to understand how the world of business really works."--Bethany McLean, coauthor of the New York Times bestseller All the Devils Are Here "Revealing... McDonald combines a lucid chronicle of McKinsey's growth and boardroom melodramas."--Publishers Weekly
