The End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn't What It Used to BeThe End of Power: From Boardrooms to Battlefields and Churches to States, Why Being In Charge Isn’t What It Used to Be by Moisés Naím

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Perhaps one of the hardest books I’ve ever tried to get through. Perhaps it was because I listened to the audio book and the author’s voice was unbelievably slow and monotone. I struggled to stay awake – which was great to help fall asleep on the beach sometimes. The information was interesting in a Malcom Gladwell kind of way, but I just couldn’t get the point to a lot of it. Power is decentralizing in many different areas, which is leading to instability, which in turn is leading to new alliances and power structures. But I kept feeling like saying ‘so what’?? What’s the point of this book. If it hadn’t been recommended by Zuckerberg, I doubt I would ever have picked this up.
