I like the parable story method in describing the dysfunctions. You will hear the people described in the story and you will immediately say oh that's just like Bill in accounting etc
The actual hardness part of the book was going back to review the actual dysfunctions in a more dry method.
Classic, there is always more to a story. Nothing is quite as simple as everyone typically jump too, or the media jumps on. Malcolm gives a variety of examples and studies of this this. Yes sometimes it may feel a bit long till he finally gets back to his original point but it's because he delves into the detail.
I've always told others that usually there's more to the story about someones success then what appears. Malcolm finally proves that to be true. Though I have not bought in 100% on the cultural bias from far far back I do believe there is a cultural bias in many things.
I'm sure many people will state his findings as anecdotal, they are backed up with studies.
Really thought I was going to hear more words of wisdom from the Wizard but that was not the case. Yes you hear a little of what the Wiz says about each of his blocks then you hear a bunch of scripture and the actually passages. Not against the bible but that is not what I was expecting. The narrator gives each passage number as well. As famous as the Bible is I was not interested in hearing the narrator give how the passage fits the building block and the mortar. Made the book dry and less interesting.
Only gave it 3 stars because at least the blocks are given out with a bit of a reason as to why from the Wiz. Very tempted to have given it just 2 stars
