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

If ever there was a topic for demystification, blockchain is it. Together, the Tapscotts have achieved this comprehensively and in doing so have captured the excitement, the potential and the importance of this topic to everyone -- Blythe Masters ― CEO of Digital Asset Holdings

This is a book with the predictive quality of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and the vision of Elon Musk. Read it or become extinct -- Tim Draper ― Founder of Draper Associates, DFJ and Draper University

Blockchain is a radical technological wave and, as he has done so often, Tapscott is out there, now with son Alex, surfing at dawn. It's quite a ride -- Yochai Benkler ― Berkman Professor of Entrepreneurial Legal Studies, Harvard Law School

If you work in business or government, you need to understand the blockchain revolution. No one has written a more thoroughly researched or engaging book on this topic than Tapscott and Tapscott -- Erik Brynjolfsson ― Professor at MIT and co-author of The Second Machine Age

An indispensable and up-to-the-minute account of how the technology underlying bitcoin could - and should - unleash the true potential of a digital economy for distributed prosperity -- Douglas Rushkoff ― author of Present Shock and Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus

Technological change that used to develop over a generation now hits us in a relative blink of the eye, and no one tells this story better than the Tapscotts -- Eric Spiegel ― President and CEO of Siemens USA

Few leaders push us to look around corners the way Don Tapscott does. With Blockchain Revolution he and his son Alex teach us, challenge us and show us an entirely new way to think about the future -- Bill McDermott ― CEO of SAP SE

Blockchain Revolution is a brilliant mix of history, technology and sociology that covers all aspects of the blockchain protocol - an invention that in time may prove as momentous as the invention of printing -- James Rickards ― author of Currency Wars and The Death of Money
