Reviews

"Mercilessly exposes the downside of the cult of measurement and managerialism."-The Economist
"Muller delivers a riposte to bean counters everywhere with this trenchant study of our fixation with performance metrics."-Barbara Kiser, Nature
"Highly readable."-Luke Johnson, Sunday Times
"Many of us have the vague sense that metrics are leading us astray, stripping away context, devaluing subtle human judgment, and rewarding those who know how to play the system. Muller's book crisply explains where this fashion came from, why it can be so counterproductive and why we don't learn. It should be required reading for any manager on the verge of making the Vietnam body count mistake all over again."-Tim Harford, Financial Times
