Praise for
The Innovator’s Dilemma and Clayton M. Christensen:

Forbes
“[Clayton Christensen is] one of the most influential business theorists of the last fifty years.”

The Financial Times
The Innovator’s Dilemma achieves a rare feat: It is at once a satisfying intellectual solution to a long-standing business puzzle and a practical guide for executives and investors.”

Wired
“. . . Required reading in Silicon Valley, where it has been championed by the likes of Steve Jobs, George Gilder, and Andy Grove.”

The Huffington Post
“A seminal book.”

Bloomberg Businessweek
“A holy book for entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley . . .”

Fortune
“The notion of ‘disruptive technology’ is one of the timeliest ideas of the Internet age. Coined by Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, it’s at the heart of his influential book
The Innovator’s Dilemma.”
