In this RocketBlocks mini-lesson, our ex-BCG Founder, Kenton Kivestu, discusses a reading for future or aspiring consultants.
Rather than focus on the typical laundry list of business books (eg, The McKinsey Way), Kenton sets out some key skills successful consultants need (eg, business fundamentals, leadership, teamwork) and then makes one key recommendation in each category.

Fundamentals: Thinking, Fast and Slow (Daniel Kahneman):
Teamwork: The Boys in the Boat (Daniel Brown):
