8 out of 10

Ha! Erste! chawoso will als nächste.
Schönes Cover übrigens!
Ich finde übrigens, dass dieses Gesetz wunderbar passt auf die Anfertigung von Hausarbeiten, Doktorarbeiten, Vorträgen, etc.. Wieso hat man mir das nicht früher gesagt, das Buch stammt immerhin aus den 50ern??
- Am Arbeitsplatz könnte man es dummerweise auch dazu einsetzen, die Angestellten noch mehr zu hetzen, deshalb ist es vielleicht ganz gut, dass es nicht bekannter ist.

Nachtrag im November 2012: Der Autor wendet sein Gesetz auf Verwaltungen an. Und auf die britische Kriegsmarine im Vergleich von 1914 und 1928. Ergebnis: 67% weniger Schiffe, 31% weniger Matrosen und Offiziere, 40% mehr Verwaltungspersonal und 78% mehr "admirality officials". -- *gacker* -- Das Büchlein lässt dann ein wenig nach, enthält aber lustige Details zur Personalauswahl damals und - ähh, damals, Pensionierungsalter und Flugreisen.

I have read it and it was ok, because it`was a small one...
