New Managing Partners – Read this book

Interesting book by law firm management consultant Patrick McKenna: First 100 Days: Transitioning a New Managing Partner.  In addition to some of his own useful observations about law firm management, McKenna also offers real-world commentary of leaders from firms like Baker & McKenzie, Morgan Lewis, Pillsbury Winthrop, Ropes & Gray and Sonnenschein.

The format of the e-book is interesting too, but I’d rather not have to navigate a ‘clever interface’ to gather information about McKenna’s book. How about a simple website? Or a blog?  Mr. McKenna’s book has great information and I’d like to get at it more easily.  Why not do something like what Daniel Gilbert did to promote his book, Stumbling on Happiness?
