About the Author:

Peter C. Brown is a writer and retired management consultant living in St. Paul, Minnesota.

From Library Journal:

Ever since those icons of rugged individualism, the Lone Ranger and Tonto, rode into Western towns at the first sign of distress, consultants have been offering a unique and valuable service to those in need. As downsizing corporations continue to "outsource" work to independent contractors, an increasing number of refugees from business, government, and academia are utilizing their talents as independent consultants. In contrast to the typical how-to-get-rich books, consultant Brown, himself a former Fortune 500 middle manager, provides a realistic and balanced description of the risks and rewards of this work. Writing in a fluent and engaging style, Brown intersperses information and advice with real-life profiles of consultants who have successfully applied these principles. Informative, thorough, and motivational, this is recommended for individuals contemplating the transition from employee to consultant.
