5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on the subject, 22 Oct. 2013
This book is simply brilliant and Prof Medina reads it with panache on the audio version. It is up to date yet has classic examples, based on facts not opinion yet it will inspire the reader. Along with Margot Sunderland's "What every parent needs to know" it makes the best pair of parenting books out of the 11 I've read. It may even make you want another child. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Distilled from concentrate :), 10 Nov. 2010
How refreshing to find so many insights, explanations stories backed up not by cheap conviction but by thorough research and empirical evidence. Prof Vermeulen has spared us the hard work of mining detailed academic tomes for their buried treasure on how companies and their people really operate.

Over a hundred questions and myths like "Narcissus vs Humble Bloke - and the winner is...?" are answered by studies of share prices, analyst rankings and hard facts. Complex topics aremade memorable by whimsical and insightful terms like "the Red Queen Effect". Analogies like comparing business strategy to using "Binoculars in the Fog" glue it all together.

All in all it's highly engaging and will make you smarter. The ratio of wisdom per page is one of the highest i've read - I really enjoyed it.
