Insightful

This book helped to understand in its own way the layers of bureaucracy that are created in an organization. Why a thing exists sometime is important, but many may not explore why should it continue to exist.... A good read...

One of the most interesting books I've read in a while, now I just have to get a hold of and read the original Parkinson's Law book.
