Otherwise, the book itself is entertaining. The best part is all of the anecdotal evidence they produce to "prove" their theorems about systems.
ANNOUNCING PITHY QUOTABLES IN ALL CAPS
Luckily these aphorisms, oh Student, are based on a Lifelong and Deep Study Of Systemantics, and proposed as semi-serious Laws (like Murphys). The approach wisdom in the limit, but often seem to rest on
ASSERTING THEM WITH CONFIDENCE
