Great text for studying dysfunctions from a societal, institutional, or organizational perspective. Difficult reading if you want to read it with a cup of tea in hand. Tuchman does well with her definition of "folly" which is an extension of the definition of "dysfunctional."

It's worth reading purely for Tuchman's definition of folly. In her patented personal-to-political style, she illuminates examples of governmental self-sabotage. Her illustrations lack a certain depth, but you finish the book thinking about current events you'd like to add. .

This is a wonderful book that brilliantly chronicles folly throughout history. It uses 4 examples, Troy, the Prostestant Secession, the American Revolution, and the Vietnam War and compares them. Not an easy read, but a rewarding one. Highly Recommended

The overall idea of the book is excellent; that is, decisions of the past must be judged in the light of the times. We cannot judge past civilizations and their decisions by our standards. While the idea of how we should view history is excellent the execution of the concept in this book is horribly flawed. The author allows her bias to overflow into every passage. Nowhere is this retelling of history accomplished from a neutral point of view. This destroys the good premise behind the book. Anyone reading this book and agreeing with it will simply be agreeing with the liberal point of view of the author who adopts modern liberal western thought in reviewing the decisions of the past and condemns those who did not think like modern western liberals. The author fails to follow the basic premise of the book and thus destroys her credibility.

The author defines folly very clearly as self-defeating behavior, although I didn't expect maxims from an accompished historian.

I enjoy reading history books, but this book was just boring.
