the context for Alan M. Webber’s Rules of Thumb, a guide for individuals
in every walk of life who want to make sense out of these confusing,
challenging, and compelling times. Drawing from his own experiences as
cofounding editor of Fast Company magazine and a wide range of
interactions with some of the world’s leading thinkers and highest achievers,
including Nobel Prize winners and global change agents, Webber has produced fifty-two
“rules of thumb,” a collection as wise as it is useful and as honest as it is
helpful. The rules come from real-life lessons learned and recorded on
three-by-five cards, a trick borrowed from one of the many mentors whose
teachings Webber captures and catalogues in this book.
