Democracy *does* work, and Surowiecki explains how. He also explains how the process goes wrong. Many heads really can think better than one -- but only if each of us is thinking for ourselves!

A really good read. One of those books that makes you think. I would urge anyone to read it before making assumptions about its contents.

To one who gets irritated by some of the excesses of capitalism, some of the emphasis on markets may be a little tough to swallow, and the writing is a little "lumpy" at times, but overall I enjoyed it.
