The glibness and shallowness are astounding, such that I had to stop reading every few paragraphs to scratch my head and marvel that such drivel could ever have got published. The Harvard Business Press won't have much of a reputation if it keeps printing garbage like this.

This is a very 21st Century book: That would be too much like hard work. It's like writing a book about life in the trenches and only talking to Lord Kitchener. Goffee and Jones write like mediocre journeyman journalists.
