Overview

Coopers Constant answers fundamental questions about human folly. Why did an Alabama man go to the police station to complain about being cheated in a drug deal? Why did an Idaho woman request that the highway department remove the Deer Crossing sign on her road because too many deer were being hit by cars? The Peter Principle and the Dilbert Principle attempted to explain incompetence in organizations, and Warren Buffett spoke of the three is of the business cyclethe third i standing for the idiots, who screw it all up. Unfortunately, Dr. Peter, Scott Adams, and Warren Buffett failed to ask, "Why are so many peoplethe idiotsincompetent in the first place?" This book furnishes the answer: Coopers Constant. It introduces the reader to the mindless M-type and the M-organization, or MORG.

Dont read this book unless you are willing to change your view of humanity.
