Publisher's Summary

Alongside his devastating critique of management "philosophy" from Frederick Taylor to Tom Peters, Stewart provides a bitingly funny account of his own days in a management consulting firm. Combining hands-on experience with the theoretical underpinnings of contemporary fads in efficiency improvement, empowerment, and strategy, Stewart knows his stuff, and thus he lays bare how consultants really have done very little for the business of others - while making a killing for themselves.

Excellent!

A good perspective on the business of management and strategy especially well suited for current graduate/MBA students who will undoubtedly find the authors opinions thought-provoking in challenging the current business education model.

A punch on MBAs' faces

What made the experience of listening to The Management Myth the most enjoyable?

I always had a weird feeling regarding the stuff I "learned" at business school and always had a lot of criticisms regarding general "management theory" and Matthew managed to voice them in a well written and funny way, going through the history of the matter, pointing out their failings and even some positive points, while using his background in philosophy to provide interesting references and contrast to the subject.

I didn't expect to like the book so much but I highly recommend it, for people with business education to get a different non-status quo view and for anybody else as an antidote to "business guru magic".
