It is refreshing with a book on how to "defend" against disruption, being an incumbent company (where most of us works).
Further it provides a pragmatic approach where you have options for, harvest retreat, occupy, disrupt - all as valid options depending on the situation - its not a one answer.
It is a bit long with tons of examples, and some times feels a bit blurred partly due to this in the key messages.
While the book advice "competences" that you need to have/build, and approaches you can take it is not a change management book - there is not much guidance (but a long list of examples from other companies and what they have done) on how to actually implement needed changes - but I assume this is deliberate.
