Douglas Mill Douglas Mill Consulting : Supporting professional practice

Book Reviews

Practitioners are understandably cynical about the jargon contained in many management texts. Often these publications contain about five ideas which would happily fit within 80 pages but which are padded to well in excess of 250 pages. Many are vanity publications. Not all are relevant and practical for the average professional services firm.

A book review service provided by Douglas Mill Consulting provides a filter for the busy practitioner to determine reading and theory priorities.
