Todd's already praised the book Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths and Total Nonsense by making it his latest "must read". He even chatted with the authors in a podcast.
The April 2006 issue of Business 2.0, reiterates the idea behind the book: it's not what you know, it's what you do with what you know that makes the difference.
As the reviewer Theodore Kinni says,
The authors attack chestnuts of business wisdom, such as the beliefs that financial incentives drive performance and that work and private lives should remain seperate, arguing that the logic behind these notions is 'incomplete, mistleading and downright wrong.'
