It is also interesting to read a book in 2010, as it was built around the speed of change in business when it was written in 2007. It seems the primary businesses are doing quite well, including ThePoint, which spawned Groupon. Now Groupon, which didn't even exist when the book was written, is poised to be the fastest growing company of all time. I think there is some merit to Eric Lefkosky's business model.
This is a must read for anyone interested in hearing from an accomplished entrepreneur not just how to stay afloat in the modern sea of business, but how to disrupt and conquer.
Eric Lefkofsky proves with Accelerated Disruption how to harness the reins of technology and ride it to success; this outstanding insight into his methodology is not to be missed.
