Sparse Elegance: Charles Koch’s “The Science of Success”

This is not a self-help book. It is an excellent slim introduction to free market economics and economic thinking masquerading as a business book.

While I picked up the “Science of Success” to see how he applied economic thinking to running a business, I was blown away the authors clarity and elegance in describing economic thinking.

I also found his business system – MBM (Market Based Management) The Science of Human Action Applied to Organizations – to be interesting. It was not a how-to guide though.

  1. I very much enjoyed this book. As you say, though, it is more of an introduction rather than a how-to. I eagerly anticipate more information coming from the Market Based Management Institute.

  2. Bah, as John Kerry would say, only dropouts get MBAs.
