Again, a wonderful written business book from those two super authors. While the book title might be a bit misleading, it's all about INDIVIDUALITY. It's about experiencing and expressing our individuality in life (mostly through the context of business). Business if floaded with copy-cats. This book is a manifesto against copy-cat business (or karaoke capitalism).

Understanding this is like understanding outsourcing. Executives used to believe that 2+2=5. Now it is 5-2=7 because the more non-core activities you place outside the firm the higher the value you can generate. Funky :-)

Only four reviews of this remarkable book (with mine). Strikes me as strange that no other Americans have reacted to it. I suppose that says something. It confirmed for me more than it revealed, but for that I'm also grateful. If it's a premise you can understand and follow, it's a gratifying read.

I love the writers' different "accent" in the writings, and if you are bored with the many similarity among American Gurus' writing, try this one.

Funky Business is thier first book and i love the book very much. This long awaited sequel has been in Asia ( i bought in spore twice) for sometime and i strangely could not find it in Amazon (untill i check today).... and why it is listed for 50USD is beyond me. (Should be about 15 USD for the soft cover).

The book has nothing to do with Karaoke (singing to the tune of music which is popular in Asia), and this is about business, the rise of the individual, and a host of other things.

I am biased, I love Tom Peters, Seth Godin, and both writers of this book.
