Simple Rules

Beth Kanter mentioned the book Simple Rules and it sounded interesting so I checked it out of the library.

It is interesting but it’s a little dense and a little dry. Once I grokked the concept laid out in each chapter and mini-section of the chapter, I found myself skimming to see real life examples of the types of simple rules people (and animals/insects/etc) use. Those pieces were especially interesting.

I have spent a good bit of time thinking about bottlenecks and simple rules for them… I’m pretty sure I’ll be giving the process a try (or two) myself, very soon.


  1. I agree with you about the book being a little dense, but I enjoyed reading about the examples. Always appreciate when dense books summarize the key points.
