This book uses clear prose to explain systems design. Interestingly, Senge's draws "evidence" from a wide variety of sources -- including business case studies, public policy history, Tolstoy's _War and Peace_, and centuries-old Sufi parables. In the process, he describes how all of us can be more consistently successful -- both as individuals and as organizations. We must -- and can -- step back and see the forest for the trees. Although Buddhist thinking seems not to have directly informed Senge's thinking, from my interest in Buddhism I read this book as "describing Buddhism's law of cause and effect in business terms."
