"A powerful and penetrating look at two big trends shaping our lives: Aging boomers and the Web. An unbeatable combination and an irresistible book."
--Harry R. Moody, director of academic affairs for AARP
"Until Dot Boom, most companies did not know how to penetrate the walls surrounding this seasoned and cynical consumer set.

This book should be in the library of any marketer wishing to better understand this hugely important market and it will be a great asset in seizing a leadership position in boomers' hearts and minds."
-- Stephen Croncota, chief marketing officer for Haggar Clothing Co

-- Judy Diaz, managing director of brand strategy for PBS

-- Gary Moulton, Ph. D., product manager for Microsoft
