Top customer reviews
From the opening vignette about the making of “House of Cards,” through the discussions of long tail economics, the ascendance of iTunes and shifting nature of market power, to the realization that using big data isn’t necessarily at odds with the creative process, the ideas in the book are presented with refreshing clarity. The writing is delightfully jargon-light, packed with examples that bring the science that it’s based on to life.
Highly recommended to any intelligent reader who wants insight into the future of entertainment. (And there’s plenty of incisive and subtle analysis in here for any entertainment executive looking for a deeper dive into the forces changing their industry.)
