EppsNet Book Review: The Elegant Solution

12 Apr 2008 /
The Elegant Solution

Unreadable . . . unbelievably bad. Ironically, for a book about innovation, the concepts are trite and the prose consists of one lazy cliche after another.

Watch — I’m going to open the book to a random page and list the cliches: “secret sauce,” “blow the doors off,” “boil the ocean,” “where the action is,” “ivory tower,” “marching instructions.”

The book is an insult to the intelligence of anyone who might conceivably want to read it.

    I tend expect mediocrity in most products—seems they think they can draft on an old idea for quite a while.
    Thanks for the review
