Managers consume what?

from this site,

....managers are voracious consumers of theory. In other words, they value ways to think about their world, and mental tools that will let them make decisions and predictions with a level of confidence higher than they get from experience and intuition alone.

Ummmm. Ok. :-P

Seems like the writer is myopic about managers .Probably he sees only HBS educated managers as managers. Or else this is a case of well strategised marketing in that they want all the managers and wanna-be-managers to think that "Great" managers "value ways to think about their world, and mental tools that will let them make decisions and predictions with a level of confidence higher than they get from experience and intuition alone". Atleast the book ( on such snake oil theories)sales will be good .
