    For how long have we been told that hierarchies are crumbling, whether it is in the world of work or in our social lives. We are increasingly going direct, cutting out the middleman or intermediary. Our world is increasingly becoming a flat world, the author of this book observes. We cannot throw away the old skills and techniques used to navigate and collaborate through the hierarchy – a typical vertical hierarchy – as we still need them as we move along the flatter, horizontal world. After all, For how long have we been told that hierarchies are crumbling, whether it is in the world of work or in our social lives. We are increasingly going direct, cutting out the middleman or intermediary. Our world is increasingly becoming a flat world, the author of this book observes. We cannot throw away the old skills and techniques used to navigate and collaborate through the hierarchy – a typical vertical hierarchy – as we still need them as we move along the flatter, horizontal world. After all, we may be doing it and more of it ourselves; so we must know what we are doing and streamline or maximise our actions. We also need to think about other travellers in this flat world, ensuring that any interactions they may make with us and our companies are as smooth as possible. It is in all of our interests in so many different ways. This book is a series of collected chapter essays, relaying the considered insights of many people who are already navigating the flat world with aplomb. Taken in isolation there is a great range of opinions and experiences that the reader can get from this book, before moulding them together to hopefully get something that will equip them for this brave new future. It is not the clearest, easiest and most direct of reads. Taken together, the book suffers; it lacks a certain common voice, a feeling of togetherness and a bit of its fizz is missing. This was more disturbing and distressing because you can sense there is a lot of great information within, screaming to get out. In one way this is a great example of why we need to ensure our flat world is easily navigable, as it might be a “one shot”-attempt to connect with us or, should persistence be engaged, the experience may not be as engaging and mutually beneficial as it should be; the implications of this are fairly obvious. This book could be the equivalent of a one-stop-shop information source, yet this reader’s potential loyalty to the brand is not guaranteed as the navigable path felt to be strewn with rocks and thus should a perceived better, smoother rout exist to similar material, whether better or not, maybe one steers the boat in that direction, possibly never to return. Regrettably, it just didn’t feel that this book was really ready. Pioneers are often breaking new ground, yet the messages they pass on for wider public attention do need to be very clear, acting as a magnet to draw in a crowd who may be confused, sceptical or unsure. Just preaching to the converted is not enough. Autamme.com
