What Global Business Leaders Are Saying About Living Networks

“I’m not sure that even Ross Dawson realizes how radical — and how likely — his vision of the future is. Ideas that spread win, and organizations that spawn them will be in charge.”
— Seth Godin, author, Unleashing the Ideavirus, the #1 selling e-book in history
“Dawson is exactly right — pervasive networking profoundly changes the business models and strategies required for success. Living Networks provides invaluable insights for decision makers wanting to prosper in an increasingly complex and demanding business environment.”
— Don Tapscott, co-author, Wikinomics
“Ross Dawson argues persuasively that leading economies are driven by the flow of information and ideas. The ideas in his own book can position any individual or company at the center of that flow. It’s a fast read, fun and full of examples.”
— Thomas H. Davenport, Professor and Director of Research, Babson College, and author, Competing on Analytics
Living Networks is a fast-paced tour of today’s business frontier. Rich with examples drawn from a myriad of settings, every page forces the reader to ask “How can I use that?” Beware! This book will make you think!”

“The author has demonstrated that the success of his first book was no mere flash in the pan. His book is the one I would choose as a guide to understanding and action for the practical business person.”
— Bill Godfrey, Editor, Change Management Monitor
