Here's what I wrote on Amazon.com (one typo fixed):

Friends have always needed language wherein to map out and work with the psychological aspects of doing business, and that includes recognizing "group-think" and "mindset" as real phenomena. The Greeks used to narrate their accounts in terms of deities, in myth, and we find this mode of abstracting perpetuated in both philosophy and depth psychology. I'm glad the Quakers are not forgetting to think in terms of Powers. I hope this means they'll be regaining their stature as movers and shakers in the business world, per Quakernomics and the 1790s, though of course using updated tools (both physical and metaphysical).

Here's a link to the original review:  http://amzn.to/25Kp7aR

I take up this theme in more depth in this highly intellectual blog posting:
