The Wisdom of Crowds

The Wisdom of Crowds - James Surowiecki The book is highly listenable but suffers greatly from events which have transpired in the years since its original publication (2005 vs. today 2013). The financial crisis and stock market crash really do poke holes in a lot of his narrative on how groups out perform individuals.

I would not recommend using a credit today for this book because it is outdated by recent events and we have evolved technologically since those days. I do like the authors main theme that groups out perform individuals but he would first need to rewrite his story to explain recent history and include recent tech innovations.

The narrator is one of my favorites and he will make it easy to listen to the whole book in spite of the anachronisms in the narrative.
