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.
By Cathy Sumeracki
Whether you are climbing the corporate ladder or raising pigs, this is a must read. I will have to admit that I'm the one in my company who keeps her head in the pig crate. You and your co-workers will be able to identify with these characters and incidents. The pig snout is my favorite.
Cathy Sumeracki has done an excellent job of defining the corporate world and describing the downsizing, restructuring, and changes that relate to so many of today's companies. A real survival guide.
If you work with people, or you are ever going to, then this book is for you.
