5.0 out of 5 stars Little known but excellent book full of management wisdom, 13 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Parkinson's Law or the Pursuit of Progress (Business Library) (Paperback)
I found this little gem a treat: full of bits of wisdom from a professor gifted with eloquence and brevity; it's 109 pages pack more useful information for managers, decision makers and others than many a so-called business book. Not only that, the style of writing is witty, making it an easy read between meetings. Situations are recognisable, and yet full of in-depth knowledge.
My manager gave it to me: brave, but if only more did the same... Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Parkinson's Law, 15 Dec 2010
This review is from: Parkinson's Law or the Pursuit of Progress (Business Library) (Paperback)
Northcote Parkinson is a GENIUS especially considering that this book was first published in 1957 and it is still a topical book. A humorous and true picture of our society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Progress, Shmogress, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parkinson's Law or the Pursuit of Progress (Business Library) (Paperback)
One of these things we invoke without ever having read - except we should!
The basic formulation of Parkinson's Law is simple (and not original), but has so many corollaries we have forgotten, and should remember.
Especially me, as I am now in retirement and writing reviews for Amazon. Would have been good if I'd taken it to heart earlier!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classical bureaucracy, 12 Dec 2012
This review is from: Parkinson's Law or the Pursuit of Progress (Business Library) (Paperback)
This is a classic. It's terribly dated now but still an excellent read, especially the chapter about the nuclear power station
