    This was required reading in college and discussed in depth in group dynamics classes. The theory of group-think is very well supported and anyone in management needs to understand the group dynamics that make it all too real and a threat to the world.

    A fantastic book that discusses the theory of "Groupthink" and recounts the issues related to it during two of the most significant failures in US military history, i..e The Bay of Pigs and Pearl Harbor. While a Professor friend of mine recommended it with caveats that it had some factual biases, it is an excellent piece that explicates some of the problems in bureaucratic structures. This book could easily be updated with the recent problems experienced in the Middle East. Without giving away t A fantastic book that discusses the theory of "Groupthink" and recounts the issues related to it during two of the most significant failures in US military history, i..e The Bay of Pigs and Pearl Harbor. While a Professor friend of mine recommended it with caveats that it had some factual biases, it is an excellent piece that explicates some of the problems in bureaucratic structures. This book could easily be updated with the recent problems experienced in the Middle East. Without giving away too much of the plot lines of the book, I would highlight a few concepts that I personally think sell the book. 1) "Secrecy of Information" - Need to know attitudes and the potential downfall associated with it. 2) "The effectiveness trap" - Picking your battles can often result in a lot of stalemates 3) "Newness" - the value of trust, when back-peddling becomes the main mode of operation 4) "Political Calculations" - backing yourself into a corner as a function of the verbiage It was also interesting to hear Janis's thoughts on various illusions that occur as a function of the group thought and repetition. The way that he has drawn apart the framework is quite brilliant and should be closely studied by people of most humanitarian disciplines. A fascinating must read for those that are interested in group interaction.
