I found this book inspiring and insightful as well. All of us grow with our painted pictures of how we look at the world and as we work around be it in our community or in the corporate world, we get influenced highloyby these painted pictures of the world. We all have own paradigms and those need to be looked at from time to time. I foudn this book captivating because it induces everyone to look at their own paradigms first and leaves the decision to shift them to the reader.

Probably seminal back in the day. Now the concept is widely understood. This book is very easy to read because it has only one simple idea. Probably a good monograph, expanded into a book.

While written from a business perspective, I found that this book had many applications for all aspects of life.

The book was an easy read, but could have been half the length.
