Systems, when disrupted or challenged, can falter, collapse, or rebound. Recently, scientist, economists, political leaders, corporate heads, and average citizens have begun to discover general principles about why some things function while other fails. The rules, they found, apply to complex systems; from ecosystems in natural environments; to business enterprises; to communities, civilizations, and even planetary life. In this fascinating, accessible book, global innovation network directory Andrew Zolli and technology journalist Ann Marie Healy intertwine their expertise to describe how societies and other systems develop the shock absorbers that they need to survive and thrive. A thought-provoking book for inquisitive people fascinated with what is going on everywhere.
