Marginalia

Adapt reviewed in “Nature”

I promise I’m not going to publish every review of Adapt on this RSS feed but the review in Nature is beyond an author’s wildest dreams:

Harford’s case histories are well chosen and artfully told, making the book a delight to read. But its value is greater than that. Strand by strand, it weaves the stories into a philosophical web that is neat, fascinating and brilliant. Like the best popular science, it advances the subject as well as conveying it, drawing intriguing conclusions about how to run companies, armies and research labs… It would be hard to improve Harford’s outstanding book.

Gosh. Full review here for Nature subscribers. I’m off to open something fizzy…
