5.0 out of 5 stars True science, 25 May 2004
What is most startling about this excellent book are the lengths to which apparently reputable scientists will go to in inventing increasingly elaborate and far-fetched theories about how we came to be so different. And I don't mean the aquatic ape theory! After reading this, you really wonder why people are still thinking up convoluted stuff about thermal regulation and mechanisms that seem to rely on evolution haing access to a crystal ball. Why, when there is such an elegant, consistent, and complete explanation that fits so perfectly with the hard evidence? I always thought science was about finding theories to fit the facts, not selecting facts to fit your own theories! Elaine has done the right kind of science here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good as Stephen Fry!, 28 Dec. 2003
Rob Inglis does a riveting, lively reading of The Hobbit. Don't be put off by other reviews commenting on the fact that he sounds like he is reading for children - after all, Tolkien intended it to be a book for children! But of course, as with many books intended for children, the story is just as much a favourite with grownups. I would thoroughly recommend this audio book for both young and old.
Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the package does not include the author's maps (an essential feature of fantasy stories!) or a list of chapters (the index lists all the tracks by number and duration but does not show which chapter starts at which track).

3.0 out of 5 stars Rambling but with an important message, 22 Jun. 2002
The essential message in the book is that multi-skilled teams work much better than functional teams. Through lots of anecdotes and case studies, the author highlights the damaging effects of organising people into teams according to their function (marketing, design, manufacturing, etc.). The communication barriers and team conflicts conspire to cripple essential business processes. Teams focused on deliverables with all the necessary skills are much more flexible and motivated, which gives you the best quality results. The book is over long but well worth dipping into, with a useful summary at the end.
