The points made are all quite valid, but the stretch to applying pig farming wisdom to modern corporate culture is sometimes a bit much, especially in the example of "Heterosity is vital for continued process improvement", which does not roll off the tongue like many aphorisms of this ilk. Nonetheless, this is a good little book full of very general but applicable survival advice for people entering the business world.
