  1. What are the titles of each Pillar?
  2. What are the titles of each General Principle?
  3. What are the similarities between Weber's eight principles, and the five pillars?
  4. What are the differences?
  5. Bonus: Who's "keen analysis" did Weber "Draw Heavily" upon?"
  6. Double-Bonus: What was the title of this "keen analysis." (Hint: Weber hinted at the title when he was talking about Cathedrals earlier in the chapter.)
  7. Triple-Bonus: Where can this keen analysis be found? (Answer in URL form, i.e. http://placeofkeenanalysisis.com/analysis)
