What disappointed you about The Power of Noticing?

There is nothing new here. What we read/hear is stories about past events (that we already knew) with little rigorous, new observations about how to "notice." This book is a compilation of press releases at best.

What was most disappointing about Max Bazerman’s story?

Max's experience is highlighted. Very little to no insight about noticing. The title of the book is disconnected from its contents.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Noticing?

I would spend much more time on what we should be noticing today about possible future events. Give us insight about how to notice about what we are facing now. For example, the auto industry is undergoing disruption now. What should we be noticing - now.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointing book - I would not recommend this.
