"Unleashing the Killer App...is a best-of-breed primer for executives cramming for the new economy." -- Wired
"A practical and persuasive guide that focuses on how all businesses, even risk-averse old-line organizations, have an opportunity 'not just to survive but to exploit dramatic changes' wrought in their markets by technology.... Instead of shrinking from the hard problems facing existing corporations, Mr. Downes and Mr. Mui attack them head-on with 12 technology strategies to help build what the authors call 'killer apps.'" -- The New York Times
"It's rare that a business book distinguishes itself among the pack of cookie-cutter manifestos. KILLER APP rises above with skillfully written analysis and compelling company profiles that combine to map today's digital landscape." -- The Industry Standard

One thing that really annoyed me thoughout the book was the author's attempts to create then overuse something called Metcalf's Law and Moore's Law out of a couple of common sense observations. In each chapter, the authors constantly refered back to Metcalf's Law and Moore's Law as if these "laws" are on the same plateau as some created by Einstein. Both Metcalf and Moore are intellegent, excellent inventors, and astute businessmen, but I would never try to create some "law" out of a couple of common sense observations. After reading this book, I envision the authors having statues of Metcalf and Moore in their offices that they kneel in front of daily for inspiration.
My opinion, don't spend your own money on this book. Borrow it or get your company to pay for it.
