Synopsis:

In this fascinating book, New Yorker business columnist James Surowiecki explores a deceptively simple idea: Large groups of people are smarter than an elite few, no matter how brilliant–better at solving problems, fostering innovation, coming to wise decisions, even predicting the future.

With boundless erudition and in delightfully clear prose, Surowiecki ranges across fields as diverse as popular culture, psychology, ant biology, behavioral economics, artificial intelligence, military history, and politics to show how this simple idea offers important lessons for how we live our lives, select our leaders, run our companies, and think about our world.


Review:

"The performance of groups is a wonderful subject, and Surowiecki has a remarkable eye for the telling anecdote, illustrating abstract claims with vivid examples. his central point is convincing."

Cass Sunstein, New Republic, 06/28/2004

Review:

"[T]he originality and sheer number of demonstrations of the impressive power of collective thinking provided here are fascinating, and oddly comforting."

Ken Kurson, Bookforum, Summer 2004
