A friend who stayed with me recently gave me this book as a "thanks for having me" present. He told me the world would make a lot more sense after I read it, and I can see what he means - there's a lot of "oh, of course" moments in it, especially around the self-perpetuating nature of bureaucracies.

Not everything in it I agree with, and I think sometimes the author was stretching a bit to make the facts fit his theory, but it was definitely an interesting read.
