  • The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations

    If you cut off a spider's leg, it's crippled; if you cut off its head, it dies. But if you cut off a starfish's leg it grows a new one, and the old leg can grow into an entirely new starfish. The Starfish and the Spider argues that organizations fall into two categories: "spiders", which have a rigid hierarchy, and "starfish", which rely on the power of peer relationships.

    Chan Meng says: "Centralized and decentralized models"

    John D. Spooner has carefully crafted a series of essential life lessons that every young person just out of college or high school needs to read before they embark upon their own life's adventures. Told in friendly and reassuring tones, Spooner relates wonderful stories to illustrate and gently guide the next generation of what they can expect when searching for a job, how to know if you've found the right spouse, insights on how to plan for one's financial future, how the internet has changed our lives, dealing with adversity in life, and much, more more.

    Traditional businesses follow a simple formula: create a product or service, sell it, collect money. But in the last few years a fundamentally different model has taken root—one in which consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power. Pioneering entrepreneur Lisa Gansky calls it the Mesh and reveals why it will dominate the future of business.

    Where does The Mesh rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best books I've read all year and I read quite a bit.. Chalked full of practical insights and keen observations about how social is leading to much needed innovations and creating a new kind of shared economy. Unlike most books that are mostly mediocre fluff with a few nuggets here and there this one offers solid goodness from cover to cover. Highly recommend to anyone interested in business and economics.
