The Wisdom of Crowds — James Surowiecki

Having spent a week reading about National Socialism in Austria, I felt that it would be nice to explore some of the non horrific things that crowds are capable of. And so I turned to James SUROWIECKI.

The Wisdom of Crowds is a collection of experiments, thoughts, and research which began life as a column for the New Yorker.

SUROWIECKI’s book is probably the best book that I have ever read on the topic of crowds. I would love to share some extracts, but unfortunately, it is difficult to pick. That said, I’ve referenced it a lot over on the doopoll blog

So if you’re into it. Go there.
