Kahn, veteran of the New Yorker, has authored a sanctioned centenary history of a key management consulting and industrial research firm. He profiles its people and the problems they have tackled. Clever anecdotes and quotations enhance a somehwat uneven writing style. Hal Higdon's The Business Healers (Random House, 1969) is a broader collective portrait of consultants but is not a history; Daniel Guttman and Barry Willner's The Shadow Government (Pantheon, 1976) critically analyzes the impact of consulting firms on public policy. Kahn's work, the only available book-length history of Arthur D. Little, is recommended for larger libraries, academic or public.
