Grand Intentions by Trevor Barr is an exciting read that involves many themes and works at many levels.  It concerns a fictitious telephone company, Telco One, which is undergoing major change as the Government privatises it.  Telco One is in the throes of moving from a traditional culture based on public sector, even public service, values to a commercial entity subject to the overwhelming imperative of shareholder value.  The twists and turns as Telco One transforms from its previous culture into a dynamic commercial entity are transfixing.  This is a must-read book for those with an interest in what could become a dystopian drama if not for the emergence and re-emergence of grand intentions and praiseworthy aspirations of the characters themselves.

A book review of Chaos Monkeys: Inside the Silicon Valley Money Machine, published 2016. The book is a warts-and-all account that describes many undesirable aspects of “Silicon Valley culture”. While the book is overly self-indulgent, it could valuably be read by policy makers interested in start-ups and business culture.
