** Simple Rules by Donald Sull and Kathleen Eisenhardt

Full of entertaining examples, Simple Rules: How To Thrive In A Complex World is an enjoyable book that proclaims that complex enterprises all benefit from simple rules, and certainly the examples show that the approach can work in many different arenas. That said, the all-important issue of what the rules should be, or how to tell whether they are indeed insightful or true is set to the side.

Still, I found it very useful to be reminded that simplicity does not necessarily hobble progress in complex fields.
