"If'anyone can make it [Operations Research] understandably readable and positively interesting it is Stafford Beer ? everyone in management'should be grateful to him for using clear and at times elegant English and ? even elegant diagrams."

Operational Research Quarterly"This superb book is one of the very best I have ever read on management science." Management Science "A brilliant book? which rose far above the ruck of jargon-ridden ephemera. This is a study'profound, wide ranging, witty, graceful and self-critical of the working of managerial systems?" The Sunday Times "The sheer scale and scope of Beer's book would rate it management text of the year in any list" The Statist "Decision and Control is a major work, both elegant and erudite." The Guardian "Beer's imagination and enthusiasm stimulate those with whom he works to seek and cause improvements?"
