Why I Never Hire Brilliant Men

And now for something completely different: an article from 1924 called "Why I Never Hire Brilliant Men."

I find it's a very pleasant read. The soft tone is something we've sadly lost in our modern world of hyper-sensationalized "Top 5 blah blah" blog headlines. I'd like to be able to write like he did; no such luck, but at least I haven't resorted to the "top 5" yet.

As a bonus, the article also makes many good points about hiring.
