    Started off a bit slow for me, but it picked up. Seems like decent advice although I thought some of his analysis on Apple was suspect. ...

    This is a really interesting book for someone who is looking at a mature & successful organization and who is interested in helping it continue to evolve and innovate. Ultimately success breeds complacency, and this is even more likely with organizations than with individuals. How ...

    As with Moore's other books, this one is full of good wisdom culled from personal experience and research. The content is rather focused on technology companies, and large ones at that, but it is not difficult to distill lessons that can be applied to most, if not all, types and sizes ...

    Simply fantastic. Geoffrey Moore has a real talent and voice when it comes to business books. This is a MUST READ for any executive or board member. ...

    This book is another mixed bag. Some parts are worth a five star rating. But the book as a whole isn't put together well. First, it's very formal and technical in it's writing style--like a business school PhD paper. I say PhD because it's got real depth and insight, but also because h...

    This is one of those seminal books that I'll be returning to many times, in fact I plan to read it 4 or 5 times cover to cover. I'd like to write some really meaty blog posts distilling and absorbing some of the key points, it is really worth studying and analysing this book. The brea...

    It's a thought provoking book and will give you a lot of tools to tackle specific problems as well as a general framework for when you need a vision, strategy or better execution. It's designed to be more of a manual, something you pick-up again in 4 months and start applying the fram...

    The best strategy book I've come across in a long time. The challenge with strategy is like that with other fields such as technology, is that a new paradigm emerges often once a decade or so, and in-between, while publishing or press ink does not slow-- the field focuses on refinin...

    Rather dull and basic. I normally enjoy Moore, not for new learning but rather for remembering. This wasn't up to snuff. ...

    Great insight into strategic thinking in the technology sector. Very informative and useful case studies at the end of each chapter. I am sure I will reference the book again and again especially for the suggested frameworks. That?s my first book for Geoffrey Moore. Looking to...

    THE "playbook" for growing you mid-large business... if leading by playbook is your sort of thing. This book goes into amazing detail about the strategies of growing you business by taking over niches, dominating the mainstream, and optimizing the old stuff. This book is so detailed th...

    This book is positioned as a follow-up to the innovator's dilemma and is focused on helping larger firms. From a start-up perspective, it helps to understand how bigger players think about these issues so you can strategically undermine them. ...

    First couple chapters are a little dull, but once you get tot he meat of it and the case studies, it is pretty good. I am not a business person (I am a software engineer), but a lot of people in my company are reading this book and I learned quite a bit about differentiation. ...

    Geoffrey Moore is the Rainer Maria Rilke of business authors. So much insight is packed into each sentence that you have to read each chapter very slowly to ensure you absorb everything. Fortunately for the business executive, this book is only about 200 pages long. It's stuffed to the...

    Great book to have on your book shelf, the one in your office, if you want to be seen as thrustworthy and vigorous. Also useful for curing mild insomnia, and/or tossing at someone to get their attention. Yes there is some useful stuff in the book, but you have to wade through a lot ...

    Fairly interesting and modern business studies. I actually liked this a lot more than most business model generation books I've read, it feels a lot more relevant to the current technology market. There are a LOT of frameworks, though. ...

    The best portfolio management books I have read so far. As an operation lead for a Fortune 500 high-tech company, this is exactly what I need. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in the position of portfolio managing over $1B Complex-system (high-tech) company. It provides...
