1.0 out of 5 stars
80/20 also applies to this book - just about, 18 Feb. 2009
The 80/20 principle is very useful in this extremely busy century. and the author does a good job in both introducing its origins and some of its current applications.
However, much of the book is then simply a rehash of these kernels. I ended up scanning the remaining chapters and found little to justify spending time on it in detail. The language used was also very dry and lacking in any real inspiration or colour - it was more technical and very boring at times. I was also disappointed at the lack of examples for the principle.
Overall, it was a timely reminder but it could have been written in a quarter of the pages used, with fresher and more colourful text.
