Solid work: veers off into slightly obscure metaphors,

Spectacularly good. Unlike many books of this type, this isn't just one person's opinion. The book opens with a discussion of the research methodology (10 person-years of it) underlying the book. That alone makes it worth a dozen airport-departure-lounge management books.
It was also an easy listen (I had it on CD, listened to much of it 3 hours straight on a long car journey and wished I had a few more miles to go)
However I gave it four stars rather than five because it tended to veer off into excessive use of analogies/metaphors (three circles, hedgehog concepts and the rest) which for me made it harder to get at the detail, and more difficult to judge the strength of the evidence, than an unvarnished description of what they found.
Definitely, definitely read it if you are involved with management; and if you don't have time to read it all, read the first three chapters
