The way he illustrates the situation and the people’s role in the accident was perfectly clear,

and it defiantly helps me to have a crystal-clear understanding of the concept. In fact, I felt that

max deliberately described the concepts and ideas by making a connection to his experiences in

personal and professional life, something like a connection between an image and reality. In this

way, he used and improved our imagination ability, which helped him to make even the difficult

concept easy and clear to understand for ordinary readers. For instance, the author first described

a memory, which was a lunch with his father and his colleague Jimmy Eppinger, to explain

“Giants”, then used another memory with his colleagues, George Nelson, in the workplace to make

a better illustration for this concept (De Pree, 1989).

In evaluating Breadth, I analysis the author ability to consider a different point of views in

describing concepts. In this book, there are some problems in the breadth of information that he

provided. For example, he believed strongly in participative management and brought some clear

definition for this concept (De Pree, 1989), but he did not mention to other management styles

such as theory X and theory Y to describe a different kind of management theories. Also, in

describing the importance of culture in designing the corporation’s building, max provided his

experiences on investing a significant amount of money on designing three ponds around the main

factory site in Zeeland. In this way, he did not mention the reasons why companies in real-life tend

to save the costs and avoid investing in this kind of idea (De Pree, 1989).

In evaluating logic, we consider that to what extent the argument is reasonable, and the

thinking in step by step process generate logical reasoning. In my opinion, this book was logic

because in argument author carefully expand the argument by definition, short story, additional

resources such as book and quote. At the end of the argument, he successful made logical results

that seem reasonable and convincing. For example, he used quotes from Mahatma Gandhi in
chapter “What’s Next” (De Pree, 1989, p. 120) or he mentioned to book of “Servant Leadership”

(De Pree, 1989, p.12) by Robert Greenleaf to make reasonable arguments.
