"Not all capital is economic." (#5)
"A mission or vision statement that is impossible to disagree with might not be saying much of significance." (#15)
"Cannibalize your own sales." (#27)
"Profitable, fast growing companies can be chronically short of cash." (#38)
"Promoting the best performer to manager is often a mistake." (#67)
"Sacrifice the trivial few for the vital many." (#77)
"Obsolete does not always mean useless." (#81)
After each of these and the other 94 "things," Preis and Frederick offer a brief explanation of the given assertion's significance. None offers a head-snapping revelation but together, throughout the sequence in which they are presented, they provide a thought-provoking and informative briefing on key business concepts, issues, and concerns.

Its a nice book and convenient to learn the basics of things.
Its a bit reandomnly organised, some 'things' are actually just quotes, but you'll learn enough to have a good idea on the topic.
I have a business background, so obviously this book seemed a bit shallow, but that is kind of the objective.. im sure it could be interesting for those with a different background.
I will try the one on architecture to make a better judgment.
