It was rather dated, but interesting. Not helpful for what I needed in 2013-2014. The book is solidly written in the1990s with no major eye towards the future.

Format: Paperback
Looking for some informative, original and clear thinking about strategies for growth? This book is a great choice! This is a collection of eight outstanding articles selected from past editions of the HBR. The articles cover: value innovation; growth through acquisitions; growth through diversification; capturing the value of supplementary services; and exploiting the virtual value change. Each article begins with an executive summary which, for the fast-forward crowd, is a big plus.
So many books are merely ONE GOOD ARTICLE embedded in a thicket of verbiage. Chopping away through such a jungle of verbosity for the gist-of-it-all often proves tedious and disappointing. (Blessed are the laconic!) This book, on the other hand, just serves up a bunch of 'gists' -the pure meat and potatoes of ideas. Happily, the HBSP has published several other collections of this sort on such topics as knowledge management, change, and leadership. Each of these is collection of first-rate 'gists'. Reviewed by Gerry Stern, founder, Stern & Associates, author of Stern's Sourcefinder The Master Directory to HR and Business Management Information & Resources, Stern's CyberSpace SourceFinder, and the Compensation and Benefits SourceFinder.

After reading this book it prompted me to get more from Harvard Business Review. If you liked this book I highly recommend subscribing to the Harvard Business Review magazine. It has very topical information just like this.
