Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A witty allegory of the four types of organisation: the club culture, ruled over by Zeus; the role culture, whose patron saint is Apollo; the task culture, owing allegiance to Athena; and the existential culture, whose people come under the orbit of Dionysus. This work is for the survivors in a world of changing organisational culture.

Author notes provided by Syndetics

Charles Handy was born in Kildare, Ireland, in 1932, and was for many years a professor at the London Business School. From 1977 to 1981, Handy served as warden of the St. George's House in Windsor Castle, a private conference and study center concerned with ethics and values in society. He is now an independent writer and broadcaster who describes himself, these days, as a social philosopher. Other books by Handy include Waiting for the Mountain to Move, Beyond Certainty, and The Hungry Spirit.
