Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this fascinating book, New Yorker business columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea: Large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant-better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.

With boundless erudition and in delightfully clear prose, Surowiecki ranges across fields as diverse as popular culture, psychology, ant biology, behavioral economics, artificial intelligence, military history, and politics to show how this simple idea offers important lessons for how we live our lives, select our leaders, run our companies, and think about our world.

Synopsis:

Subtitled, "Why The Many Are Samrter Than The Few". Shrewd, meticulous and profound, this book will change for ever the way you think about human behaviour, and how it effects our businesses, political systems, and society.
