This belongs firmly in the secular-parable school of business writing. The moral of the stretched metaphor is: change is inevitable, best adapt than get stuck in your ways. At less than an hour to read, with helpful fake discussion at the back for folk who don’t know their metaphors from their metadatas, it is what it is and I was happy to have picked it up for a song at BookOff, the Japanese secondhand book emporium.
No. 38 of 100 books I intend to read and review in 2019.
