  • Business @ the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the Digital Economy

    “If the 1980s were about quality and the 1990s were about reengineering, then the 2000s will be about velocity. About how quickly the nature of business will change…The successful companies of the next decade will be the ones that use digital tools to reinvent the way they work.” — Bill Gates

    His vision changed our world. But in this monumental work Bill Gates argues that the capabilities of computers, software, and networks are only beginning to be harnessed and that your company must start building a modern, digital nervous system now in order to compete quickly and intuitively in the new millennium.

    In Business @The Speed of Thought, Gates, one of the worlds most successful, strategically-thinking CEOs explains how to turn your hardware and software into a powerful, evolving network of information by looking at the digital systems in place at Microsoft and other leading corporations. Gates shows how your company can:

    • Convert every paper process to a digital process – and end information bottlenecks
    • Use networks to create fast-reacting virtual teams to work together among traditional departments
    • Decrease cycle time by using digital transactions with suppliers and partners to get products out before the competition
    • Knock down the walls of your company, and electronically build new business relationships and new markets

    Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future

    New York Times and International Bestseller 
    Named One of the Best Books of the Year by The Wall Street Journal, NPR, Audible and Amazon

    In Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future, veteran technology journalist Ashlee Vance provides the first inside look into the extraordinary life and times of Silicon Valley’s most audacious entrepreneur. Written with exclusive access to Musk, his family and friends, the book traces the entrepreneur’s journey from a rough upbringing in South Africa to the pinnacle of the global business world. Vance spent more than 30 hours in conversation with Musk and interviewed close to 300 people to tell the tumultuous stories of Musk’s world-changing companies: PayPal, Tesla Motors, SpaceX and SolarCity, and to characterize a man who has renewed American industry and sparked new levels of innovation while making plenty of enemies along the way.

    Vance uses Musk’s story to explore one of the pressing questions of our time: can the nation of inventors and creators which led the modern world for a century still compete in an age of fierce global competition? He argues that Musk–one of the most unusual and striking figures in American business history–is a contemporary amalgam of legendary inventors and industrialists like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, and Steve Jobs. More than any other entrepreneur today, Musk has dedicated his energies and his own vast fortune to inventing a future that is as rich and far-reaching as the visionaries of the golden age of science-fiction fantasy.

  • The Four: The Hidden DNA of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
    USA TODAY 
    BESTSELLER

    Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong.

    For all that’s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway.

    Instead of buying the myths these compa­nies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they’re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone chal­lenge them?

    In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world’s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can’t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career.

    Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four.
