520    "Based on his work at companies like Ford, Christian 
       Madsbjerg's SENSEMAKING is a provocative stand against the
       tyranny of big data and scientism, an impassioned defense 
       of a liberal arts education, and a blueprint for how 
       companies and leaders can use human intelligence to solve 
       problems.  Humans have become subservient to algorithms. 
       Every day brings a new Moneyball fix--a math whiz who will
       crack open an industry with clean fact-based analysis 
       rather than human intuition and experience. As a result, 
       we have stopped thinking. Machines do it for us.  
       Christian Madsbjerg argues that our fixation with data 
       often masks stunning deficiencies, and the risks for 
       humankind are enormous. Blind devotion to number crunching
       imperils our businesses, our educations, our governments, 
       and our life savings. Too many companies have lost touch 
       with the humanity of their customers, while marginalizing 
       workers with liberal arts-based skills.  Contrary to 
       popular thinking, Madsbjerg shows how many of today's 
       biggest success stories stem not from "quant" thinking but
       from deep, nuanced engagement with culture, language, and 
       history. He calls his method sensemaking.  In this 
       landmark book, Madsbjerg lays out five principles for how 
       business leaders, entrepreneurs, and individuals can use 
       it to solve their thorniest problems. He profiles 
       companies using sensemaking to connect with new customers,
       and takes readers inside the work process of sensemaking 
       "connoisseurs" like investor George Soros, architect 
       Bjarke Ingels, and others.  Both practical and 
       philosophical, Sensemaking is a powerful rejoinder to 
       corporate groupthink and an indispensable resource for 
       leaders and innovators who want to stand out from the 
       pack"--|cProvided by publisher.
