    Story
    (66)

    Internationally revered cultural anthropologist and marketing expert Clotaire Rapaille reveals for the first time the techniques he has used to improve profitability and practices for dozens of Fortune 100 companies. His groundbreaking revelations shed light not just on business but on the way every human being acts and lives around the world.

    "Dubious theories and unfounded science"
    Overall

    A good fiction title and a nice "feel-good" reading but this book fails to satisfy the very basic rules of logic.

    One can propose a generalization of a phenomenon based on unique observations and, depending upon which school of epistemology you belong to, either treat it as a hypothesis that must yet be proven, or adopt it as theory until it is proven wrong (i.e., falsified). But in either case, the existence of a counterexample will shatter the claim. If you are willing to read Rapaille's book from a critical thinking perspective, you will find a counterexample to his theories on almost every page.

  • Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything

    Today, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and many other items are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the burgeoning growth of these massive online communities, Wikinomics proves this fear is folly. Smart firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success.

    Bruce says: "Editor please"
    "Was probably very informative in 2006..."
    Overall

    I listened to this book in 2008 and it sounded dated to me. The general tone is a bit prophetic and pompous (as most books in this category), but unless you spent the last 5 years in a cave, you already know what's in there. Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff' Groundswell is a better alternative to this book: more encompassing and, at the same time, more informative and concise.
