Reading: Fixing the Game by Roger Martin

It is rare in reading a book, as I did over the weekend -- Fixing the Game by Roger Martin -- that you can identify a single sentence that fully expresses how you experience  the entire book.  On page 129, after dismissing the appropriateness of stock market value as a valid indicator of corporate worth, we are recommended: "...insight to find a creative answer connected to the real market.  With such creativity, we create more authentic compensation systems, and, ultimately, more authentic executives."  [emphasis is mine]

With such creativity, I hope we could solve more important problems than this!

Did you read Martin's book?  What was your take on it?
