No current Talk conversations about this book.

A clearly argued book which is theoretical enough to have sustained its appeal for almost seventy years now. It's easy to see why it became a classic in the field of administrative theory. In essence this book is about the limits of fully informed and rational decision making and the procedures and customs that organization adopt to deal with these limits. In this fourth edition each chapter is followed by an extensive commentary. Although some of them were interesting, overall I thought these commentaries were too long and that they interrupted the original argument too much.
