Hotel World by Ali Smith

2.0 out of 5 stars Hyped, 31 July 2006
I first learned of Ali Smith's Hotel World on Radio 4. She was being interviewed about her award-winning book, and I thought, 'Radio 4 -- it must be good.' Wrong. While the multiple narrators in the novel have an incredible ability to notice minute details and form them into connected ideas or have them flow from one idea to another (stream of consciousness), the novel fails. The individual characters have limited space, literally and physically/metaphysically, and their messages are muted by all of the insignificant observations they make. I struggled to get throught the novel, and twenty pages from the end, I threw in the towel. Smith will never be a Virginia Wolf based on Hotel World.

Cultures and Organizations: Software of the Mind (&hellip by Geert Hofstede

Provides a good insight into how different cultures operate. Some parts are very technical, but is supported with good practical examples.
I now use the four dimensions of culture as a basis for introducing change into Pan European operations.
