    More then 80 percent of this book seemed repetative and an over application. Introduction to and overview of principle was helpful, but beyond that reading the whole book added little value

    Evolution theory came from business metaphors, most of this book is to reverse those silly metaphors.. common non sense

    Great take on business and matching them to the laws of nature. It’s a great book to gain a different perspective and construct the way you think about business, specially if you own one.

    This book really is two halves that don't really work together all that well. However, if you read the 20% that makes sense to you, you can still get some good value out of this read, The first half of the book explains the principle (most people are aware of it by now) and shows how to apply it to your business, increase profits and revenue and decrease expenses. Detailed case studies are reviewed and step by step applications to apply it to your business are given. Most of the information applies to a private business, so those in public positions (hospital staff, government workers) will not be able to apply those examples directly, but can still take a lot of value from the examples and principles shown.However, the second half of the book becomes as theoretical as the first half is analytical. You will read phrases like "Use all the willpower at your disposal to make yourself happy. Construct the right stories about yourself--and believe them." If this kind of drivel is helpful to you, you can skip the first part and read the second. Otherwise, the value added in the last 100 pages is most definitely not in the 20% of the book that should be studied.

    Ironically, the first part of this book did not impress me. However, I came upon the key 20% later on and can speak much more highly of the work now. The writing itself is typical for this genre of business book with the work "principle" in it. Still, the author takes a basic concept and expounds on it in such a way that should make any reader wonder why they haven't applied such common sense before. Koch states that this concept has never been covered in a book specifically dedicated to that purpose, even though there are a number of other books and papers involving the topic (the works about quality and other re-statements of the 80/20 principle are the most obvious). Koch comes across as somewhat simplistic at first, seeming to think the 80/20 is an exact ratio. He then redeems himself by explaining that this is not the case and that the "imbalance" principle can vary from just over 50/50 all the way to 99.9/.1. After the background history concerning Vilfredo Pareto and the chapter on economics and business applications, the author gets down to the business of demanding people put this to work in their lives.
