Opened my mind to a way of doing things that's completely different from what all conventional models have been telling us. It exposes the flaws which cause the ultimate breakdown of all systems that rely too heavily on centralized decision making. It cuts across disciplines and sectors and applies EVERYWHERE... from governments to relationships and everything in between. This book helps you gear up for a multi-player world and unleashes a collaborative potential that can bring magnitudes of progress everywhere. Far from all the self-help books which only help you cope, the ideas in this book can actually help you solve your problems, because it makes you realize that everyone has the same problems and everyone can solve them by working together.
