    Analysis versus Instinct

    Morgan James will never become a screen writer in my mind. His writing style is turgid, slow, sometimes requires two or three passes of intense reading, but I have gained enormous insight into my thinking or lack of thinking patterns in the past. I loved his water bed hypothetical, and I think his business analyses are a sine qua non for B schools, especially the Ivy League crowd who have populated our government agencies and caused such incompetence and revolving military industrial complex ring around the rosies life games. I am happy to hear the oxymoron CIA has now adopted his book in its curriculum. We need to. I hope he will follow up with a serious criticism about the botched ethnic composition makeup of our intelligence agencies. We had two Muslim agents in all of Saudi Arabia on 9/11 according to Robert Baer, a fellow spy handler, who wrote In Bed With The Devil. Overall I think the book is a great educator about our subconscious mind and its prejudices and constant blocking of real thinking outside the box. I would give it a 5***** star rating. I have not had to endure so much intense concentration or heavy reading since I took Logic as an undergrad at the University of Oklahoma, or when I read all of Ayn Rand's writings.
