What the Critics Say...
"I would highly recommend it to anyone starting a consulting career. The author has truly singled out the most important lessons to be passed on, both of the practical type and of those related to consultancy in a meaningful and balanced life."
George Grob, Center for Public Program Evaluation
"I would use this book in an instant. I am a full-time evaluation consultant and had to figure out the personal-fit, entrepreneurial sides, and some of the technical sides myself. I am often asked by younger colleagues for advice about working as a full-time consultant. This book would be an excellent resource to recommend."
Rosalie Torres, Torres Consulting Group
"I would use this book. We are developing two graduate evaluation credentials right now and one of the elective courses will focus on evaluation practice in part. This book would be very useful for students taking the course."
Jim McDavid, University of Victoria
"I recommend this book because it’s a hands-on, application-based book that would make an excellent supplement to a course or as a reference book. I would readily use it in my daily business transactions."
Michele Baron, The Evaluation Baron LLC
"This book addresses a big and important gap in the evaluation literature. It provides a clear and concise account of what evaluators and applied researchers need to know in order to succeed in independent consulting practice."
Stewart Donaldson, Claremont Graduate University
