Product description


Lisa Gansky sees around corners and describes a future that seems impossible...until you realize that it's imminent. The Mesh is a very big idea.
-Seth Godin

Lisa Gansky makes a compelling case for the new competitive logic of sharing- and shows how to build not just a single company, but an entire business ecosystem, around this concept. If you want to understand the future, and maybe even help create it, read this book.
-Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

This is a brilliant, important book. Lisa Gansky has put her finger on one of the most important trends that will shape our culture over the next decades. She puts social media in a broader economic, cultural, and environmental context.
-Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO, O'Reilly Media

This book offers a timely introduction to the reality and importance of Mesh companies-ones that provide products and services through sharing, via community participation and a culture of trust-in a way that really matters.
-Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist

Easy access to shared and personalized goods and services is going to be an integral and ubiquitous part of the new economy. Lisa has tapped into, explains, and explores this new phenomenon.
-Robin Chase, cofounder and founding CEO, Zipcar

The Mesh clearly reveals the dramatic shift enabled by our connected world. And Gansky's practical experience makes it real. It's essential reading for anyone in business.
-John Donahoe, CEO, eBay

Gansky's book is an important read for anyone who cares about the planet or is looking to make a ton of money.
-David Hornik, venture capitalist, August Capital
