David has gathered some of the top minds in business and brought them together in a storytelling fashion that provides the reader not only with an entertaining way to understand what the "Disruption" in business is all about, but also practical information on how to go about making the right changes you need to make to your business. Here's the thing though -- If you think everything is status quo and nothing needs to change, then don't bother reading the book. But if you are trying to make sense of what the digital and social "revolution" means to your business, then it's a must read. (And yes, I wrote a chapter in the book.)

And you could say I was touting my own horn. But in actuality, what I am applauding is the idea that the "wisdom of the crowd" is far more powerful than any one person -- and the assembly of wise minds on a topic is the key to this book's success. David has orchestrated the wisdom of the many and weaved it together into a compelling and highly relevant book.

Part of what I see in my practice is what is that senior executives are not clear on how the digital and social revolution is affecting their business. As a result, they are delegating these activities to downward into the organization. And that's where the trouble begins. At the middle level management rank, they do get that there's things that need to be changed. But that level is used to keeping things status quo. They are not accustomed to telling senior management that things need to change and in a big way. So what many of them are doing is trying to make the changes, but without the right budget, resources, technology or staff. In fact, many of them are so busy trying to keep up that they are delegating what needs to be done even further down into the organization.

Rather than trying to be the expert, this compilation of perspectives from authentic and contemporary experts really brings home the broad spectrum of what the word (and world of) innovation can really bring to the party. I would challenge anyone to read even a single chapter without a new and fully viable concept coming to directly to mind as a result. Highly recommended for teams engaged in revolutionary and disruptive product and process development. Hoping and already looking forward to follow-up edition (if that's in the cards - fingers crossed). Read it and pass it on - worth every penny and minute spent reading.

David does a fantastic job in the introduction to explain what he means by disruption revolution. He uses data and his well informed personal observations of the world to make a strong case for disruption. I also found his message to be very empowering to those that are already advocates of the disruption revolution. Even the dedication page is essentially a shout out to all those that have the courage to be remarkable. The all-star line up of interviewees gives the reader a wide variety of perspectives on innovation and disruption. Probably the best part about the book is that it represents creativity and disruption based on it's format. Most business books are a combination of stories, tips, advice and facts. This book is one thought provoking interview after the next. There were a few innovators that I follow pretty closely that were interviewed for the book, and I read stories that I never heard before in any of their books or keynotes. David did a phenomenal job identifying the right people and asking the right questions to give the reader an unfiltered look into the lives of some of the worlds brightest minds.
I am currently teaching an online course on innovation in education and am using it as a recommended reading for the course. I think educators can learn a great deal about disruption from this book. Even thought it was not designed for an educator audience, the lessons are applicable across industries.

I absolutely loved this book. David has gathered wisdom from the leading innovators and business minds of our current generation. In this book "disruption" is not just a buzz-word; it is reality. Read how the leaders in the disruption revolution managed to make their mark on history and change the future. Written in a conversational interview style, the book is a quick read but chock-a-block full of really good information. If you want to open your mind to opportunities and feel inspired - read this book. No matter what industry or field you are in; chances are it will be disrupted for the good; either you do it - or someone else will.

The perfect primer for anyone looking to find the courage and motivation to start their own venture; an expertly curated source of inspiration for those already entrenched in the startup world; and an approachable guide to the world of innovation for anyone who's curious.

What better way to gain perspective than to hear first-hand from experts in the field? From Sarah Lacy to Seth Godin, David's interviews are candid and illuminating. I couldn't stop myself from reading the entire book in one sitting and promptly shared it with all of my coworkers!
