Funky Business is a self-help book, but a very different one. Rather than telling people what to think, it is an invitation to think about the changes that are currently reshaping our societies, industries, companies, jobs and, indeed, our personal lives. Rather than harvesting a single crop from a single field, we went in search of patterns crossing many different disciplines and levels of analysis. Hopefully, this guide to our times will help a few of you to make smarter choices, or at least to understand that not making a choice is also a choice. You just cannot avoid choosing. So, choose wisely.
