Review: Parkinson's Law

User Review  - Goodreads

This is a perfect blend of humour and management. Should have been widely-read, perhaps was, but this book is so old, even my copy dates back to 1965. I don't think it is in reprint any more. Which is kind of sad, for a book that explains how every cocktail party has a spiral in its midst. Read full review

Review: Parkinson's Law

User Review  - Kevin Way - Goodreads

A quick and funny read, the source not only of Parkinson's law, but also bikeshedding, and a host of other political nonsense. Read full review
