This is a fascinating book - and not one I would normally read; but I picked it up in the library and wanted to take it out, read it right through.
The author has written a blueprint for managing change - in the business/corporate/managerial world. But I found the infrastructure of the book could apply to just about any project that required serious effort, discipline, multi-tasking and ongoing thought/attention.
I liked the detail and the precision. Some of the prosaic 'stating the obvious' is nicely written into scientific terms and diagrams...which have a philosophical relevance. (I wanted to read Pirzig's 'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance' alongside.)
But Newton's book contains a serious engine for really getting a plan together, taking its components and creating the desired goal. It takes into account human divergence, random acts and interference - and aims for the best results.
