5.0 out of 5 stars Time does not change this classic!
OK. This isn't a 'new' book or currently one of the 'in' management reads but over a decade since Kevin wrote this book the key aspects and issues he talks about still remain.

Many other reviews will give you the detail of this book however what you should know is that Kevin has provided a deep insight into the digital world and these insights are as valid now...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pushes analogies, but makes you think, DEEPLY.
Kelly writes about the new economy with lots of analogies (for instance hill climbing as an optimisation stategy) He shows that the network changes the way industries operate, because everyting will be linked. Sometimes the analogies are stretched for the sake of the argument. But it offers clear thinking and sound advice about the new economy.

OK. This isn't a 'new' book or currently one of the 'in' management reads but over a decade since Kevin wrote this book the key aspects and issues he talks about still remain.

Many other reviews will give you the detail of this book however what you should know is that Kevin has provided a deep insight into the digital world and these insights are as valid now as they were when the book was published.

LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter etc. They all conform to Kevin's views about the digital world.

A great read a decade ago, and still a truly inspirational read.

Well done Kevin!

4.0 out of 5 stars Challenges many limiting preconceptions - read it or beware, 30 Dec 1999

This review is from: New Rules for the New Economy: 10 Ways the Network Economy is Changing Everything (Hardcover)
If you haven't yet appreciated that the world has changed, maybe you will hate this book. If you realise that the world has changed and that you are struggling to adapt, you need this book.
It gave me the courage to accept that old ways of doing business can be cast aside with abandon. Old pricing models are a limit to future growth and opportunity.
At times stodgy and techo driven (don't give up!), this book gave the future freelance world a sense of reality - like it or despise it, technology is giving you an opportunity - take it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Staggering good book, 6 Sep 1999
By A Customer
If you only read one book on the future of business and economics - make it this one. At 160 pages it swiftly covers many important areas, but importantly - like the best conversations - you do not get bored. I honestly think the author should make this book a bi-annual event.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic foresight - everyone should read this book, 27 July 1999
By A Customer
Kevin Kelly shows us the way the world of e-business operates - and how the reverberations of this new network economy will affect us all. I found it totally fascinating and a must for all would-be e-business entrepreneurs... thought provoking material from start to finish; and excellent for inspiring ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about the new Network Economy, 25 July 1999
By A Customer
This book is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Some may say that is "hyped up" but the people I meet that have that opinion don't seem to understand what Kevin is talking about. I, as a young (24 years old) enterpreneur, relate 100% to this book and, it acutualily made me thing harder about "the rules of the new economy". The world is changing and (at least for now) looks that it will go in the direction of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind expanding, 20 May 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: New Rules for the New Economy: 10 Ways the Network Economy is Changing Everything (Hardcover)
Kelly manages to convey some excellent ideas with great vigour and clarity. By taking to a logical extreme the current trends in computing power and bandwidth, he arrives at some startling but viable conclusions. Organisations that do not heed his message will be stuck in the mud as "network aware" companies sail by. I recommend this book to anyone who thinks that computing has more to offer than Microsoft Office.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview., 18 Dec 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: New Rules for the New Economy: 10 Ways the Network Economy is Changing Everything (Hardcover)
This is a book which anyone interested in the new economy must read. It is a well-written and interesting overview of the emergent network economy. Kevin Kelly sets out the logic of the new business model. It is important not to confuse the network economy with the Internet, current technology acts as an enabler, but the power of increasing returns and network effects is far greater. This is a guide to a new world view, a genuine new paradigm, and few readers will see things in the same way after reading it.
If you are going to read any book on the network economy start here. Another view is given in "Information Rules" HBSP Oct 1998, but Information Rules compliments "10 Rules".
