Letter From The Author
Dear Aspiring Consultant,
Thank you for investing your time, confidence, and dedication to your future career. It shows that you have the ambition to never sell yourself short in life and have the willpower to thoroughly prepare yourself for your consultant interview.
When I as in your position, I remember not knowing whether consulting was 100% right for me, but what I did understand was that a consulting career is not only a strong career by a great stepping stone into other related fields. As it turned out, consulting was my niche and I am now privileged enough to be able to share all my hindsight—the good, the bad, and the embarrassing—with you!
Everything I wish someone would have told me is included in the seven very applicable chapters of this course. All of your anxieties and preconceptions about consulting interviews are dissected with such thorough examination, that you’ll be motivated, confident and ready to go conquer the consulting world. I hope you truly enjoy this course and find all of its informational tidbits relative, witty and of course helpful! Best of luck and wishes.

I opened the document using Amazon's "Click to LOOK INSIDE" feature. The first several pages were advertisements for other books by this publisher, which would be fine were the total number of pages much, much more than 52. The copyright page mentioned the hard work "to provide the highest quality content possible" and asks the reader to be ethical when using the product. Fair enough... and normally, I'd concur wholeheartedly. However, in the opening paragraph of content, I found the following (making the probability of theft very low):
"It is actually preferred by the interviewer for you to ask for clarification rather than pretend you fake comprehension." The sentence is illiterate. Perhaps it should be rewritten to make sense and to engage the reader with active voice vs. passive voice. For instance, "Interviewers prefer you ask for clarification rather than feign comprehension."
THE VERY NEXT SENTENCE:
"Summarize what key points at the end of the interview process." Replace the word "what" with "the" and this sentence makes sense.
THE VERY NEXT SENTENCE:
"There are many different roads that have led people to pursuing a consultant career." Replace the word "pursuing" with "pursue" and this sentence makes sense. However, the sentence is passive (again) and very weak. It should say, "People pursue consulting careers from many different roads." Editor, you always want the subject to be the actor. When the subject is acted upon, people lose interest and brevity is usually lost.
THE VERY NEXT SENTENCE uses semi-colons erroneously. Semi-colons demarcate stand-alone ideas, capable of being sentences themselves. Therefore, you should replace them with commas and insert the word "and" into the final point you listed. Also, you don't need the word "that" in "that they." The inclusion makes the sentence too wordy and weakens the points you are trying to make.
THE VERY NEXT SENTENCE:
You used the semi-colon correctly here, but wrote "each strategic move shapes not only the way companies interacts with each other, but with the constantly evolving consumer market." The word "interacts" should NOT be pluralized since "companies" IS pluralized. Moreover, the final portion of the sentence makes no sense because you left out the word "also" or "too" which is necessary to tie both halves of the comma together.
First content paragraph complete.
EDITOR: If I were the author, I would be irate to have received editing at the junior high school level (and I think this is a fair assessment). Based on the author's name, I'm guessing he is 1) a non-native speaker, or 2) a multi-lingual speaker. In either case, you have done him a deep disservice.
The "Letter from the Author" on the main Amazon page for this book also contains numerous errors. Please feel free to use my recommended changes. Good luck.
BUYERS: Do NOT buy this book until the book is truly edited.
There is a much better option out there: Case in Point by Marc Cosentino (whatever the latest edition is). It's much more thoughtful, thorough and analytical, and written by someone with much more experience. I actually bought this book while waiting for the Cosentino book to come in the mail (so I could mark it up) and now feel like an idiot. In my impatience, I should have bought the Kindle edition of the Cosentino book and then Primed the paper version.
Have a beer on me, author. I just paid for it.
