Fascinating story about progress and discovery.
This book taught me something about about success, about power play, about politics and about passion.
It made me think about the influences that broader circumstances have individual lives and projects- how the conditions of a forest affect individual trees.
It describes how society functions as an complex organism, and uses illuminating analogies to make you think about the human body and about society at large.
It also made me consider the importance of symposiums and concentrations of people- how great things happen when you put great people in the same room.
