Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0143101358, Paperback)If you cut off a spider's head, it dies, but if you cut off a starfish's leg, it grows a new one, and that leg can grow into an entirely new starfish. Traditional top down organizations are like spiders, but now starfish organizations are changing the face of business and the world. This work deals with this topic.
