This volume is an enlightened and thorough examination of advisory boards and their function, beginning with a discussion of the new "advice age," and a review of the essential characteristics of contract advice, then through an exploration of the context in which businesses and other institutions must now function and the pressures which have sparked interest in the use of advisory boards. Mueller uses interesting comparisons between advisory boards and traditional statutory boards, consultants, and mentors, and he provides practical guidelines for the contracting advisee organization. Clinical experience from the advisor perspective is provided, as well as an appendix for those seeking an invitation to serve on an advisory board.
