I've read Barabási's (Linked) and Merchant's (New How) books before this one so most ideas were already known, but Tapscott's approach was a bit closer to what I was looking or wanted to hear about ... Read full review

User Review  - StarofSophia - LibraryThing

A good "brain-jogger" to help you think more creatively about business, but feel free to skim rather than read deep, as it's very repetitive and talky instead of precise (a bane of most wikis). Read full review

That the nature of work, collaboration, and other economic activities is changing very rapidly these days is indisputable. However, it is not immediately clear to everyone what are the forces that are driving this change and what sorts of effects it may have. This book tries to answer these and many other questions in the realm of how the latest advances in various information tools are enabling the radical shift in collaborative production. It is a very readable book aimed at the general audience. The fact that it doesn't delve too deeply into the technical details (like the "Long Tail, The, Revised and Updated Edition: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More") may be a plus, as this way it may be more suitable to appeal to the wider readership base. Overall, it is an interesting read if you are not familiar with the general trends in open and collaborative economy.

User Review  - Sebastiano Mereu - Goodreads

Many good examples and explanations on how today's economy works. Sometimes there are too many details, which make reading it a bit boring, but on the other hand, it's a good source of inspiration and how-to approaches. Read full review

Interesting if tediously upbeat and attempting-to-be-hip-by-coining-awful-words look at the mass collaboration, mostly via the Net. Read full review
