loaded with great ideas

in general, there are tons of brilliant ideas in this work. the concept that IRR and DCF bias organizations away from innovation is powerful. Clayton M. Christensen and Peter Drucker are both great in here. -1 point on story just because there is a lot of frivolous MBA speak--obtuse jargon for simple concepts--which smacks of pseudoscience and detracts from the credibility of some of the authors. but I still recommend it!
