really liked it
bookshelves: business, social-science

Compared to most popular business books, this is an above average read. A simple model lies at the heart of it (think in terms of stocks and flows, gain Access to the worlds you want to be part of, Attract interest and Achieve one's potential), but the writers avoid the common plague of repeating the core proposition ad nauseum and, instead, have enough interesting insights (like their thoughts on Creation Spaces and Collaboration Curves) which mostly justifies the length. There are also some good examples of companies, and individuals who are archetypes of the blend of social, creative and entrepreneurial skills that are well suited to the digital age. Nevertheless, there are a couple of chapters that read like any other self-improvement book, for example The Individual's Path to Pull, and a long section lauding the power of passion didn't do a lot for me. Overall, pretty good for this genre.
