›Moo‹ ist ein komischer, subversiver Campus-Roman über eine Ackerbau- und Viehzucht-Universität irgendwo im Mittleren Westen der USA – oder: ein Abbild der Welt im kleinen. Die Pulitzerpreisträgerin Jane Smiley verarbeitet Wissenschafts- und Gesellschaftskritik zu einer amüsanten und weitsichtigen Komödie. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)
Stellen Sie sich vor, Sie kommen als grüne Kugel auf die Welt, Ihre Mutter nennt Sie Moo und überlässt Sie anschließend Ihrem Schicksal. Nun denken Sie vielleicht: Naja, in meiner Fantasie ist eine ganze Menge vorstellbar. Deshalb präzisieren wir die Sache mal mit der Information, dass Ihre Mutter die Kuh einer dicken Bäuerin ist, die sich verzweifelt als gottesfürchtige Trinkerin in Joes Bar engagiert. Ihr Vater allerdings bleibt unbekannt, auch wenn ein den Weg kreuzender Ochse Ansprüche erhebt und ein Sperling seine Vaterschaft nicht völlig ausschließen will. Und dann gibt es da noch die Eidechsen, tausende, die alles besser wissen, Kreuzverhören wenig zugetan sind und Ihnen die Aufgabe zuweisen, eine gewisse Mii zu finden, von der Sie absolut nichts wissen, also auch nicht, ob es eventuell besser wäre, von ihr gar nichts wissen zu wollen. In diesem Sinne, viel Glück bei der Suche. Die Insel ist ja nur 57 Kilometer lang und 22 Kilometer breit, im Großen und Ganzen aber sehr reizvoll, wie die 63 Bilder zu dieser Geschichte belegen.
Mooism is an international Church of Lies, partially not devoted to non-promotion of the Law of Bull. Mooism has nothing to do with cows, we just like the sounds they make. This book talks about Mooism.

Most organizations are stuck in a rut. On one hand, they understand all the good things that will come with growth. On the other, they’re petrified that growth means change, and change means risk, and risk means death. Nobody wants to screw up and ruin a good thing, so most companies (and individuals) just keep trying to be perfect at the things they’ve always done. In 2003, Seth Godin’s Purple Cow challenged organizations to become remarkable—to drive growth by standing out in a world full of brown cows. It struck a huge chord and stayed on the Business-Week bestseller list for nearly two years. You can hear countless brainstorming meetings where people refer to purple cows and say things like, “That’s not good enough. We need to create a big moo!” But how do you create a big moo—an insight so astounding that people can’t help but remark on it, like digital TV recording (TiVo) or overnight shipping (FedEx), or the world’s best vacuum cleaner (Dyson)? Godin worked with thirty-two of the world’s smartest thinkers to answer this critical question. And the team—with the likes of Tom Peters, Malcolm Gladwell, Guy Kawasaki, Mark Cuban, Robyn Waters, Dave Balter, Red Maxwell, and Randall Rothenberg on board—created an incredibly useful book that’s fun to read and perfect for groups to share, discuss, and apply. The Big Moo is a simple book in the tradition of Fish and Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. Instead of lecturing you, it tells stories that stick to your ribs and light your fire. It will help you to create a culture that consistently delivers remarkable innovations.
