What a waste of time this book was. It only took about 15-30 minutes to read, but I was begging God to give that time back to me. This book is the perfect example of all that was wrong with U.S. business culture in the late 90s up to the crash of the overinflated tech industry. It was a time when the simplest things were made massively complicated. Every old idea rehashed with buzz words was a "paradigm shift in the new economy." It was a time when any inexperienced college grad with Birkenstocks, a goatee and a laptop could throw "dot com" after "widget" and have billions of dollars thrown at him. My boss at the time required every employee to read it. I am truly shocked that my eyeballs didn't roll across my desk from rolling them them so much reading this self-important junk. It's all common sense, people. Change happens. Does anyone out there NOT know this Jeez!
