—Brett King, Author of Augmented and Founder of Moven

A thoughtful and sharp look at the invisible forces transforming society today and in the near future. Never before in history have we experienced the scope of change being wrought by the networks, software and real-time marketplaces explored in Vaporized.”

And yet amidst this disruption is exponential opportunity: for reinvention, for transformation, for new possibilities. Robert Tercek’s Vaporized maps for us this new territory."
—Jason Silva, host of National Geographic’s Brain Games

“Vaporized is a magnificent guide to the way software defines modern commerce: self-organizing, real-time, mobile markets that are devouring the material world. Tercek masterfully weaves his wide knowledge of both traditional and new businesses, showing us how it is less profitable to actually own things - and insanely profitable to control information about things.
—Mark Jeffrey, author of Bitcoin Explained Simply

“Rob Tercek is one of the people who gets the transition happening in every corner of the economy from old, slow, solid, offline models to high-speed, digital, ephemeral ones. His insights matter to every industry and every business. Read the book. Listen to what he says.”
—Ramez Naam, author of Nexus and The Infinite Resource

Robert is the Buckaroo Banzai of digital media. He literally travels to the future – and reports back foresights through a blend of provocative humor and actionable insights. He connects the dots like none other, and always energizes people with a creative call to arms for what is possible. Quite simply, Robert brings the thunder.”
—Michael Margolis, CEO and founder of Get Storied and StoryU

—Ned Sherman, founder and CEO of Digital Media Wire

“Robert Tercek’s Vaporized theories provide a jolt of what’s possible. Tercek convincingly poses breakthrough concepts that are both disturbing and promising about what will come.”
—Rod Perth, President and CEO of National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE)

“Too many ‘aha moments’ to list! In the spirit of Megatrends, Vaporized reveals what’s right around the corner. This remarkable peek into the future is much more than a fascinating read. Follow Tercek’s lead to be ahead of the change and the competition.
—Marshall Goldsmith, author of the New York Times and global bestseller What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

"Robert Tercek takes us on a riveting ride through past tech-enabled disruptions to a profoundly reimagined future that is inspiring yet unnerving. Every corner of humankind will be impacted, and every business leader, thinker, doer or spectator should be deeply concerned by the fresh questions, insights and possibilities raised in this book.”
—Paul Zilk, CEO of Reed MIDEM
