Bellwether Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Bellwether

Sandra Foster is researching fads and trends, trying to determine how bob hair cuts and hula hoops become popular. Bennet O'Reilly is trying to study group behavior in monkeys. They work for a corporation that modern readers will recognize - filled with meetings, management styles, and forms - and with the world's most annoying assistant, Flip. This book is light on the SF, but heavy on the humor. I particularly liked the part with the sheep.
