The Wisdom of Crowds

James Surowiecki

Overview

Have you ever wondered how to become a better team player and why having a good crowd mentality is a big competitive advantage? Most job interviewers are looking for individuals who are able to become members of a team and thrive in a group setting. Extroversion has become a sought-after quality - especially in the corporate world.

You might expect something about crowdfunding or the power of the internet with The Wisdom of Crowds, but you'll be surprised. James Surowiecki is a staff writer for The New Yorker, and in his book, he shows us how being part of a group and feeling included can make any individual a better worker and a happier person. The Wisdom of Crowds demonstrates why groups make better decisions, and how we can all use this knowledge to our advantage.

"Paradoxically, the best way for a group to be smart is for each person in it to think and act as independently as possible."
