Enjoyable; relevancy to boardrooms is loose

Useful text collection. But is it for Boardroom.
About the middle.
Quotes from Chuang Tzu.
Many individual quotes.
This consists of numerous passages from classical Chinese philosophers. They are excellent quotes, and, given the lack of recordings of some of these classics it is valuable to have them on CD.
However, the title is misleading. I don't see that these quotes were chosen particularly for the boardroom, or for executives. There is at least as much focus on general cosmology (about which I am more interested than politics mystelf). There are numerous quotes in Confucius that would direcly applicable to ruling a country or a town, but the sample of quotes no more focuses on these than on any other aspect of Confucius. Similarly, Lao Tzu has a whole political aspects that was commented on by the legalist Han Fei, but these quotes relating to politics are no more frequent in the selections than any other cosmological, mystical or psychological quotes or Lao Tzu.
The quotes are fine and profound, but they seem selected more or less at random, and not with a focus on managment or the role of the executive. Perhaps the title was added after the fact to sell the CD.
