No one has ever been able to decide whether to take Professor Parkinson seriously or not. On the face of it, his "law" books are works of humor, and yet they contain such piercing wisdom that one can only wince at seeing the follies and foibles of organizational man laid bare. Parkinson's Law became a classic almost as soon as it was published. It has been translated into dozens of languages and made required reading for many firms and business seminars. The truth of Parkinson's statements on business growth, optimum committee size, the ration between a firm's architectural renovation and its financial health, as well as many other matters is self-evident and unquestioned. The only pity is that, mankind being what it is, Parkinson's Law is as fresh and true today as it was when it was first published.
