Business Book Club Why Not? by Barry Nalebuff and Ian Ayres Buy book: $17.33
Barry Nalebuff and Ian Ayres is a primer for fresh business thinking and offers simple techniques for generating ingenious solutions to existing problems, and for applying existing solutions to new problems.
I had been wanting to read this book since quite some time. However, I did not know whether this book would be something different from the other books in the market that dabble with the same ideas of ingenuity and innovation.
Thanks for sharing this book with all of us. I will be able to form my opinion about this book now. I have been a regular reader of your mails and they make a brilliant reading.
Keep up the wonderful work you are doing.

I wasn't sure I would get into the Business books, but I enjoyed the Longaberger one, and "Why Not?" is one I will read from cover to cover. Very interesting! Thanks for introducing me to such great books! (I read several of your books with you each day!)
I have found myself asking more questions with a "why not" or "how come" in them this week than other weeks and I believe it is due to this book. It is a fascinating book and I have enjoyed all the installments thus far.
I've been a member of the business book club for quite some time now. This is first time I've felt compelled to write.
So far this book has me feeling anxious. There is nothing earth shattering so far. The table of contents is lifeless. While I'll admit I'm intrigued by the subject matter, I'm worried that after reading the book I'll be looking for those additional pages that are where the meat of the book resides. I've not regretted a purchase I've made because of the book club yet and I'm afraid if I buy this one it might be the first.
I'd appreciate some feedback from someone who has read the whole book.
I have been trying to find new innovations on my own volition. Since I find the subject matter interesting I want to get the book and finish it. Yet, I have not been roused enough to run to Anderson's bookstore to make a purchase. I think it may be a good book to check out though. I might just call in and put it on hold today.
What I read in your presentation is great! I have attempted to apply throughtout my life for year (in business) and always ran into the "walls" as stated in the Friday chapter - "why have we not done this before?". Will be aquiring the book to read in full! THANKS!
Great book. Ended up going out and buying it. As a consultant, I am always looking for good reads that challenge the way I think and expand the way I look at business. This book did both. It will be useful for me as well as my clients.
