Harlem Supers by Terry Williams Harlem Supers, Hardback (November 2015)

Superintendents play a large role in the formation of relationships and networks within their neighborhood; and yet, no study in social science has focused on them. Williams closes this knowledge gap through ethnographic fieldwork, providing an in-depth analysis of the daily life of superintendents in the lower Harlem area in New York City.

Management Science in Practice by Terry Williams Management Science in Practice, Paperback (August 2008)

Terry Williams is well known in the OR field and is currently a joint Editor of the Journal of the Operational Research Society. There are some textbooks on how to be a consultant. However these are general management consultancy books. They give a good general guidance but do not deal with the specific problems of OR/MS.
