Are you consultant? Entrepreneur? Freelancer? What’s your learning strategy? Beyond trying stuff yourself, what’s your source of consulting insights? I have read Gerald M. Weinberg’s Secrets of Consulting: A Guide to Giving and Getting Advice Successfully. It seriously moved me so I decided to compile the consulting books list to read more about consulting insights. Consulting Books List
by Lin Pernille ?

I used Google Book Search to compile it. Here it is:

    There’s also “more secrets of consulting” (or similar name). I would also recommend the “getting past no”, “getting to yes” etc. series on negotiation

    Good list.

    It’s interesting how some names are evocative. Flawless Consulting sounds too cool.

  • alik levin (author) said:

    Arnon,
    Thanks for the additions. I can see you are a big fan of Jerry Weinberg too, eh? ;)

    Tess,
    Good point – must fix it and add “Contact” page. Thanks for that one.
    What contest? What’s the prize? – LOL! ;)

    JD,
    Yeah, it surely competes with “Flawless Execution”, eh? ;)

  • Giovanna Garcia said:

    Wow, this is a great list of consulting books :-) Thanks for putting that together and sharing them with everyone. I guess that is what makes you a great consultant :-), willingness to help to others.
    Thanks,

    Giovanna,
    Good to hear it’s helpful for you!
    I am looking forward to reading them all and share the info gold nuggets I will find in it – stay tuned ;)

  • Gerald M. Weinberg said:

    Thanks for the plug, Alik, but especially for the great list of books. No person can really be a professional consultant if they haven’t read a goodly portion of these.

    And Arnon, you got the title just right: “More Secrets of Consulting.” Plus, you’re exactly right about the “Getting To …” books. We don’t want the list to be too long, but consultants should at least taste one of these books on negotiating.

  • alik levin (author) said:

    Mr. Weinberg,
    Thank you for you great books!
    I am on my quest to become a high performance professional consultant. Your books are great and helpful to me. I just want more ;)!

  • .Net Development India said:

    I have never read anything on consulting.. But I can see the book has now been suggested in the blog too.. I think I have to read that..

    .Net Development India,
    I’ll plagiarize Mr. Weinberg’s “No person can really be a professional consultant if they haven’t read a goodly portion of these” ;)
