Title:  Animals Inc.
Author:  Kenneth A. Tucker and Vandana Allman
Stars:  **

The overall premise of this book is that much of management has to do
with common sense, and that one should avoid being duped by the
management fad of the day. The overarching message is that we should
emphasize people’s strengths by putting them in positions where they can
utilize them best. Makes sense, right?

Unfortunately, this fable tries so very hard to be funny that it detracts from
the simple message. In fact, the premise becomes so exaggerated in
order to set up the animal puns and humor that its validity is actually called
into question. Post parable, a small dose of balance is finally restored.
