"This book lives up to its hype. Excellent book that looks at what companies that became great have in common and distills that into an intelligent set of case studies, stories, and well researched supporting evidence."
"Its quite entertaining when an economist looks at problems. The number speak for themselves, and exclude bias. Could be called "The scientific method to problem solving." A must read. If you have an interest in behavioral economics, this is a good start."
"Could be called "how to properly estimate." Overall good, although a bit slow. Describes Fermi Method, which is used to solve questions such as "how many golf balls are in the air at any given moment" and other guesstimate type questions. A good starter for someone trying to determine how to measure intangible items."
"Examines how people make decisions and the flaws associated with them. The author is a college professor that performed a multitude of experiments evaluating peoples decision making processes. Entertaining book."
"Provides a basic look at market forces and how making markets less efficient by "make work" projects, welfare and unions can impact the market. Definitely slanted toward free market. Not "One Lesson" by any stretch of the imagination, but a good book none the less."
"Must be hard to have big dollar funding, endless training, and highly skilled/motivated top-tier personnel. Companies strive to have even half the advantages the SEALS have from day one. Interesting book, but don't expect any take aways or lessons that translate to the corporate world."
"Another great book by Bart D. Ehrman. This one discusses how the Christian cannon was put together and what other books were available at the time and why they were omitted. Includes a lot of historical perspective such as opposing views, religions and texts."
"Great book with some excellent information is great, but the "how to protect yourself" advice really feels contrived and is generally useless. Probably a better book if you skip the last few pages of each section."
"This book could be called "How a lazy, useless tool viewed his first job as a customer service representative at a real company before going back to being an unemployed useless tool." The only reason this book makes any money is because he used the name Amazon.com to market it. Very little redeeming qualities that cannot be gleened from a magazine article about Amazon."
