    Alastair Woodward

    Excellent book and really easy to read writing style. Still lots of incisive insights even though I am reading this several years after he wrote the book and given how fast the technology evolution is progressing. He melds brilliantly key aspects of human nature and what makes us tick with the technology and fast-changing world.

    Steve Sammartino is an excellent storyteller who tries, to summarize, the key points of how these industries are changing. He shows how the industrial era's "box thinking" does not fit in well with our current culture and economy. It is fragmenting back to the customized and personal. This book is crammed full of ideas that are worth researching. Steve has a deep understanding of how the technology works and where it is going. For that, this book is worth reading alone.

    A very nice overview of the big changes and transformations happening in all industries because of technological and business model innovation disruptions. I liked a lot the chapters on technology deflation and zero-barrier world

    This book provided interesting coverage of the ways in which the social web has affected the conduct of business. While many of the topics are covered from a marketing, rather than a financial perspective, which is my personal interest, the breadth of timely topics addressed was gratifying.
