Commonwealth Club Lecture on C-SPAN

On February 24, 2010, I gave a talk on my latest book, Dirty Rotten Strategies, at the Commonwealth Club of California.

C-SPAN attended the lecture to record it for broadcast on C-SPAN2’s “Book TV.”Watch the full lecture on the C-SPAN website.

In my talk, I examine how many institutions either solve the wrong problems unintentionally, or worse, intentionally tackle the right problems in the wrong way.

Many thanks to C-SPAN for attending and recording my talk.

Interviews, Reviews, and More of “Dirty Rotten Strategies”

I’m thrilled that my recent book co-authored with Abraham Silvers, Dirty Rotten Strategies: How We Trick Ourselves and Others into Solving the Wrong Problems Precisely, has received positive attention and feedback.

Here is a recent radio interview I did with Mike Papantonio on Ring of Fire Radio, a nationally syndicated radio show which airs on the AirAmerica radio network. The subject of our interview was “Fixing the Wrong Healthcare Problems.”

I enjoyed this thorough and incisive review of our book by Dan Bednarz on his blog, Health After Oil: The Impact of Energy Decline on Public Health & Medicine.

I was also thrilled to see this recent review of the book on Blog Business World. The thoughtful review of our “insightful and well reasoned book” summarizes the critical importance of properly defining the right problems, and clearly summarizes what we call Type 3 and Type 4 errors.

And finally, be sure to read the recent author interviews I did with the New Jersey Star-Ledger and Blog Business World.
