Uitstekend boek dat helder maakt dat we heel snel werken met een "espoused theory": een manier van werken die we uitdragen, en een "theory in use": een theorie die we zelf toepassen. En helaas zijn beide theorieën vaak niet hetzelfde ;-(

Some very good insights about management advice that is too abstract, and differences between espoused theories and theories-in-use. But I didn't like the long analyses of interviews. And some ideas (such as model I vs model II, and requiring causality) seem too simplistic to me.
