'This very interesting book provides a wealth of applicable ideas and practices that will benefit organizations in many and varied ways, from increasing effectively knowledge management and knowledge worker competences to raising productivity and performance levels... What is most impressive about this book is the numerous illustrations in terms of tables and figures which the authors use to illustrate concepts and processes...This is a well written book with innovative concepts and ideas and brings forth the birth of a new field of knowledge provocatively and methodologically with strong framework and prospects for further development.' - Donavan A. McFarlane, Journal of Business Studies Quarterly 'The language throughout the text ranges from deeply philosophical to clear, concise and method based. It is definitely a book to be consumed gradually, allowing the reader the opportunity to build on each chapter, applying their own learnings on the subject. Knowledge management as both a change initiator and as a skill for coping with significant at both a personal or an organizational level is addressed in the text. Managers as well as knowledge professional will find this a fascinating, if at times challenging work, requiring re-examination of personal and professional knowledge approaches.' Library management Vol 32, No 8/9, 2011 '...This whole field of study is like a desert throwing up new and appealing mirages that attract wandering academics, consultants or technology suppliers but rarely offer something tangible. Nevertheless the various authors between them provide much which is thought provoking and will make readers more aware of the inherent complexities and obfuscations. As such the readership most likely to find it attractive are the academics and consultant wandering in this wilderness. Usefully each chapter is provided with references while the book has a 7 page index to the whole collection. Do read it!' Bob Wiggins, International Journal of Information 'PKM as presented here invites the ambitious individual to try to find out more about themselves, to improve the ability to deal with personal knowledge systematically and according to personal goals and preferences. Viewed like this, PKM turns out to be of essential assistance in our time of information overload, attention economy, changing nature of work, lack of orientation and stress-induced diseases.'
