    In this endlessly fascinating book, New Yorker columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea that has profound implications: large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant. Groups are better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.

    Hamad says: "great discourse on group dynamics...."
    "One interesting idea, but this book lacks wisdom"
    Overall

    I kept hoping after hours of listening I there would be a pay off. No luck. the most interesting finding, that certain crowds, if they are diverse enough are wiser, than their wisest member, is revealed at the beginning. Many anecdotes, and little wisdow, in fact a suprising level of ignorance about capitalism and people, fill the following ten hours. Well narrated.
