Format: Paperback
I have recently used this book as one of the major sources for my final project at University in Bristol. I was conducting the project for a well known company so my findings and prototype were to be implemented in the real world. As my literature review involved serious reading around the subject I got to know CI in depth. 99% of the major headings within my review were found within this book, and I found myself referring to it continuously even with many other sources at my disposal.

Format: Paperback
I think this book has some good sides and occasionally you can learn something relevant, but I think it is massively overhyped. You can expect that someone who writes about competitive intelligence advocates the subject, fair enough. But Larry Kahaner wants us to think that Competitive Intelligence is the only thing that counts in the whole wide world. Creativity? A strong research pipeline? Communication? Human Resources? Pah, get your competitive intelligence right and the money will just come pouring in (if you believe Larry Kahaner, that is) . But the real problem I have with this book is that practical advice is fairly limited (although existent), instead it takes you through an endless line of anecdotes which are about as relevant to your own business as penguins to a desert fox.

The discipline of competitive intelligence is new and confusing, but Kahaner makes it easy to understand. His real life examples are excellent and his writing is clear and crisp. After reading this book, our managers were able to institute some of his how-to ideas and it has saved us money. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand what competitive intelligence is all about.

After reading this book my company put together an information-gathering program that's already produced useful results. Although I have a small business with only five employees, I think Kahaner's suggestions can help any size corporation gain an edge in the marketplace.
