Have you read "Sway; the Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior"? Great insights and a quick read.



Thanks. Weick is a genius, just amazing, if not always easy to follow.



Bob--the "strong opinions, weakly held" is still my favorite snippet of all the wisdom you have passed down in the time I have been reading your blog. I remember it best as expressed in Karl Weick's "argue as if you are right and listen as if you are wrong," which you also introduced to me.

It is a wonderful thing that you are so generous in spreading the wisdom others bring to the table.

The quoted line is from "The Boxer."

"Still, a man hears what he wants to hear;
And disregards the rest."

I think that Paul Simon wrote all of the songs himself. At least, I don't recall Art Garfunkel being credited.
