"Just finished Biomimetic Management! How fantastic it is! Truly, I loved it and I am deeply impressed. 1000 hours watching individual ants, no less! I was awed by them, and had no idea they had such abilities and personalities. Why is this not spoken of in the general literature? I've read an immense amount and never seen this. I can only assume it's contrarian. Meaning, we can't handle the truth! Wow! It's very inconvenient though. Just amazing. Kudos! Anyway, just had to write and say how much I enjoyed it. Fantastic stuff, and important." Tamsin Woolley-Barker, Ph.D, Biomimicry Research Consultant

The book is addressed to those who are interested in self-organisation in living nature, biomimetics , organisational management, swarm robotics, artificial intelligence, complex adaptive networks design and even those who are fond of The Theory Of Everything.
Biologists, managers, engineers, experts in computer science, and everyone who likes reading about living nature will enjoy fresh novel ideas, surprising discoveries and unique facts about animal life.
“Divine Proportion”, or the Golden Ratio, has been known since antiquity and is found in all living forms and structures. But the reason behind the universality of this number was unknown. Through the study of ant societies, we are the first to reveal a hidden mechanism – the process that gives rise to “Divine Proportion”. We call this driving mechanism the “Fundamental Equation of Self-Organisation in Life”. This equation allows for the calculation of how a whole is greater than its parts.
Taking ideas from biology for sustainable and efficient business management is very appealing. Living systems teach us that there are two types of death for a social system, but they also give us a direction for immortal existence. The ways that ants manage and survive in social and environmental catastrophes are presented in this book. You will find that ants are creative individuals; they have weekends off, work in teams and can change management styles on demand. And the most amazing discovery presented in this book is that social evolution can happen in two weeks’ time without natural selection.
Ants teach us the way to think globally and act locally. A Periodic Table for human management in which all theories of management nicely fall into place crowns the content of this book and puts the first “brick” into building a bridge between people and nature.
