An amazing book and probably the single most important contribution to tech theory. Popularized the often misused phrase “disruptive technology.” But there’s a lot more than that one big idea, including how markets commoditize over time, how disruptive technologies always look like toys to the powerful incumbents, etc.
I really enjoyed this book. I read a lot of history and science books, but this stood out because 1) the anecdotes were entertaining and relevant, and 2) it got the process of innovation right. Highly Recommended.
