Reviews

Engagingly written, this is also a history of our need to classify the world and how that can be our downfall -- Hazel Davis * The Times *
Here's a piece of advice: read The Silo Effect, if only because your boss may already be immersed in Gillian Tett's latest study on how organisations can go badly awry. You would not want to be caught unawares, now, would you? Also, you might be missing something rather brilliant. Yes, honestly . . . Tett's anthropological approach adds academic rigour and richness' -- Anne Ashworth * The Times *
A profound idea, richly analyzed * Wall Street Journal (Europe) *
Highly intelligent, enjoyable and enlivened by a string of vivid case studies. It is also genuinely important . . . her prescription for curing the pathological silo-isation of business and government is refreshingly unorthodox and, in my view, convincing -- Felix Martin * Financial Times *
This is not just a business book * The Economist *
Gillian Tett is a gifted, innovative and informative writer . . . Tett writes beautifully and her book is full of insights. Those who do not know her work should make up for the oversight -- Vince Cable * New Statesman *
Supremely wise -- Rohan Silva * Evening Standard *
Useful for work - and for life -- Anne Ashworth * The Times *
