They took a civilization based on pillaging, plundering and narcotic mushrooms and gave us the Nobel Prize, IKEA, Ericsson, LEGO and Absolut. The violence is gone, but modern Vikings still have an ingenious and slightly blasphemous approach to making a name for their companies, products and causes. It's method without the madness. It's old, it's new and it works.
The Viking Manifesto explains why competition is nonsense, why reward and punishment don't work and why money doesn't really make the world go round...
Make a note: The Vikings are back and this time they mean business.
