The Elephant And The Flea Summary

The Elephant And The Flea: New Thinking For A New World by Charles Handy

Bookseller Charles Handy's best-selling new book looks at how individuals (the fleas in his analogy) relate to multi-national conglomerates (the elephants). In addition to addressing how and why we work today, he covers a wide range of preoccupations and issues including the increasing fear of big business: 'it is easy to see why many observers think that the big corporations are now both richer and more powerful than many nation states. They worry that these new corporate states are accountable to no-one - that their financial clout makes governments beholden to them ... The elephants, people feel, are out of control.'

It is classic Handy...It is entertaining, thought provoking, humanistic and wise in equal measures. * FMX *
