She makes the topic engaging and enjoyable through the usage of excellent examples but also a strong and compelling basis of discussion. The social and collaborative economy is a rapidly growing part of everything we experience as consumers but also leaders.
Rachel challenges the reader to move out of their comfort zone and shift their mindset to the future (present) of consumption.
Highly recommended book for anyone in leadership positions in any enterprise.
On the downside, the book contains a few too many openers like "Doris Swetzell was a successful academic but knew there was more to life, so she started "Share a moggie", a web-based outfit that loans cats to those who want a cat experience but not the fuss of cat ownership" (OK I admit, I just made this one up). But that sort of thing. While we need to know real case studies, I felt a bit slugged out with the number here.
But overall, this is a great book. I read it on a long haul flight from Auckland to Vancouver (feeling guilty about the airmiles I was clocking up). So to learn how to mitigate the environmental effect of other aspects of my consuming lifestyle by collaboratively consuming (and enjoying it) helped to assuage my conscience.
Once you read the book all the news items and RSS feeds you get about Collaborative Consumption will now make a whole lot more sense!
The various commentators in the media who are trying to rely the concept as 'news' just don't get the essence of the Collaborative Economy that Rachel does so if this topic excites you in any way read the book.
It lacks of the downside of it. Why isn't exploding? Which are the main reasons which some innitiatives rises and then falls?
Anyways, it is a first good overview of this theme.
Maybe a new version after 5 more years would be even better.
