Tell me, and I`ll forget. Show me, and I`ll remember.
Involve me, and I`ll learn.

So u want to be a consultant?
Complaints about the management consulting industry are as old as theindustry itself, and the jokes ("A consultant is a guy who'll steal your watch to tell you what time it is") exist for a reason.
I've worked in IT consulting for a long time, which is rather adifferent thing, but I've seen enough successful *management consulting* engagements to realize that, while abuses certainly exist, it's far from the universal scam that this tabloid-journalist-wannabe author wants to make it out to be. Sometimes, an outsider is in a unique position to speak truth to power (for example) and tell them something that they wouldn't listen to or accept from their own staff.
What we have here is some guy trying to sell a book (who evidently couldn't get a distribution deal with an actual publisher and went the vanity press route), and who apparently also noticed that, these days,yelling and ranting and generally catering to people with short attention spans gets you noticed. Good for him. Hope he sells a lot of books on his web site.
