Overview

"This fascinating analysis uncovers the business management secrets hidden in physics, biology and mathematics" -Washington Post (Featured Leadership book of the week 9/15/14)

In this follow-up to his best-selling The 80/20 Principle, the power law that helped hundreds of thousands achieve more by doing less, Richard Koch puts science to work, applying ninety-two other natural laws to promote the "science of success" within the ever-changing world of business. What does Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection prove about developing a niche product line? How can Isaac Newton's laws of motion and gravity help in a crowded marketplace? This is a must-have book for business leaders looking for clear, evidence-based reasoning that explains why some companies seem to find success everywhere they turn, while others don't make progress.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The 80/20 principle is the cornerstone of results-based living. Read this book and use it." - Tim Ferris, The 4-Hour Workweek

"Richard Koch delivers some sharp cross-disciplinary comparisons and knows his onions on both sides of the business/science fence. Koch's feet are firmly on the ground" - The Sunday Times

"Time Management is not about organizing your daily tasks, it is about organizing your essential daily tasks, and dumping the rest. Koch has made millions from this - a bestseller based on just one idea - proving that it works" - GQ's 25 Best Business Books of the 20th Century

"This controversial and entertaining read promotes the 'less is more' principles and shows that businesses make their breakthroughs when they go back to their core concept." - Kindred Spirit

"Koch writes with inspirational verve and assurance drawing on personal experience of building businesses. A useful motivational tool for appraising and leveraging talent in the organisation, his book yields some valuable lessons that any business can apply and will be of particular interest to the would-be entrepreneur." – Choice of the Month, Director
