One of the most interesting - and useful - books on organizations ever written. Once you read the book, you will find yourself applying it over and over as you see organizational issues play out. You will understand why Apollo's behave the way they do and whether you should sign up to work for a Zeus. But, best of all, you will recognize and appreciate the value of the Dionysius contributor when you meet one. My projects have been greatly improved by understanding these roles and which people are most valuable in which role.
