"In this remarkable book, one of the most original minds in all of social science shows how to make the science better. Bill Starbuck demonstrates that true scholars are defined by their inputs, not just their outputs. Inputs captured in his autobiography are converted into lessons that reshape the tools we use to understand social complexity. This book is a profound illustration of living the craft of scholarship, with equally profound guidelines to improve the craft!"-- Karl E. Weick, Rensis Likert Distinguished University Professor of Organizational Behavior and Psychology, University of Michigan
"In a fascinating account of his 40 years of investigation and learning, Bill Starbuck presents an original, razor-sharp and often devastating critique of our vast body of organizational research. He also plots the route to a better way to create useful, cumulative knowledge of organizations, This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to study organizations and it will become a classic in our literature."--Danny Miller, Rogers-J.-A.-Bombardier Chair of Entrepreneurship Hautes Études Commerciales, Montréal
