Product description

Review

What a spectacular book. Mind-blowing in its expansiveness and profundity. It makes me think we're at one of those times in technological, economic and social history where the sky is the limit (Steve Wozniak co-founder of Apple Computer and Chief Scientist at Prime Data)

The Tapscotts have written the book, literally, on how to survive and thrive in this next wave of technology-driven disruption. Likely to become one of the iconic books of our time (Clay Christensen Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School and author of The Innovator's Dilemma)

Occasionally a book comes along that changes the global discourse. This is likely to be one of those books. Blockchains are at the heart of the fourth industrial revolution and the Tapscotts lucidly explain why and how to capture the opportunity and avoid dangers (Klaus Schwab founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum)

A carefully researched and beautifully written book. Blockchain Revolution argues that the 'Internet of value' will transform our lives. A must-read for our disruptive times (Dominic Barton Global Managing Director at McKinsey & Company)

Don and Alex brilliantly illuminate the technology that could profoundly impact the way we manage issues of trust, security and privacy for years to come (Indra Nooyi Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo)

The great missing element in the Internet has been a 'trust protocol', a way of knowing that a transaction is verified and authentic. Blockchain technology could provide a foundation for that. It's a revolutionary idea and this lucid book explains why (Walter Isaacson Author of Steve Jobs)

A masterpiece. Gracefully dissects the potential of blockchain technology to take on today's most pressing global challenges (Hernando De Soto Economist and President at the Institute for Liberty and Democracy in Peru)

The blockchain is to trust as the Internet is to information. Like the original Internet, blockchain has potential to transform everything. Read this book and you will understand (Joichi Ito Director of MIT Media Lab)

In this extraordinary journey to the frontiers of finance, the Tapscotts shed new light on the blockchain phenomenon and make a compelling case for why we all need to better understand its power and potential (Dave McKay President and CEO of the Royal Bank of Canada)

Deconstructs the promise and peril of the blockchain in a way that is at once accessible and erudite. Blockchain Revolution gives readers a privileged sneak peak at the future (Alec Ross Author of The Industries of the Future)

Book Description

Brilliantly researched and highly accessible, this is the essential text on the next major paradigm shift. Read it, or be left behind.
