A brilliant, not-to-be missed account of the reasons why management thinks the way it does?and why they are flawed.If CEOS, consultants, top managers, and other financial wizards are so smart, how come they screw up so badly? Why is there no correlation whatsoever between a business school education and success in business? Why might you be better off studying something as irrelevant as?philosophy?
With wit and wisdom, Stewart makes an electrifying case that the questions and insights of management theorists belong not to the sciences but to philosophy, and that, in the final analysis, ?a good manager is nothing more or less than a good and well-educated person.?
