The Wisdom of Crowds


The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki, 2004. Although this book is very amenable and easy to read make no mistake: It is a seminal book, nonetheless. James Surowiecki has the uncanny ability to present what would otherwise be somewhat dry topics, as very interesting.

From the outset he manages to bring the examples presented in the book directly into the reader’s realm. But more importantly the logical progression of chapters paints a larger complex canvas of modern life.

His supporting premise states that under certain and perhaps often situations, “a crowd of people” are more intelligent and accurate than subject matter experts. Pushing this notion farther against the backdrop of the Internet alludes to wonderful new potentialities.

I highlighted the book and read it twice.
