My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I guess I forgot to check off this book as read a few days ago. The book was OK, and it was a fairly fast book to read, not weighed down by disciplinary jargon. That said, some of the rules are quite helpful, whereas others don't really seem to fit in all that well. I see collaboration as about human-to-human connection, fundamentally that is. Some rules were quite helpful in exploring that fundamental aspect of collaboration, whereas others (like most of the rules in the 'technology' section) were pointless, awfully reductive, and lacking solid connections to those fundamental aspects of collaboration. At the end of the day I am not sure how useful this is to my dissertation, but some (small handful) of rules might be interesting to keep in mind.
