Summary

The bible for bringing cutting-edge products to larger markets—now revised and updated with new insights into the realities of high-tech marketing 
In Crossing the Chasm, Geoffrey A. Moore shows that in the Technology Adoption Life Cycle—which begins with innovators and moves to early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards—there is a vast chasm between the early adopters and the early majority. While early adopters are willing to sacrifice for the advantage of being first, the early majority waits until they know that the technology actually offers improvements in productivity. The challenge for innovators and marketers is to narrow this chasm and ultimately accelerate adoption across every segment.  
This third edition brings Moore's classic work up to date with dozens of new examples of successes and failures, new strategies for marketing in the digital world, and Moore's most current insights and findings. He also includes two new appendices, the first connecting the ideas in Crossing the Chasm to work subsequently published in his Inside the Tornado, and the second presenting his recent groundbreaking work for technology adoption models for high-tech consumer markets.

    The first in-depth look at the multibillion-dollar company Alibaba.com—known to many as "China's eBay"—and the inspirational story behind the man who created it. 
    A bestseller in China and now translated into English and updated with recent events, Alibaba by Liu Shiying and Martha Avery tells the remarkable story behind the Internet phenomenon Alibaba.com and its founder Jack Ma, a man Barron's named one of the World's Top 30 CEOs in 2008. Ma's rise to prominence presents a riveting story: Despite growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution—in a period of total state control of the economy—he developed the keen entrepreneurial instincts that propelled him to billionaire status and enabled him to build a company outside the usual government channels. These instincts and habits incorporated martial arts training and allowed him to recognize, early on, that the Internet could leverage his company to rapid growth and also transform the way business is done around the world.  
    Alibaba.com, where businesses can buy and sell everything from air beds to zippers, started with a modest initial investment of $60,000 and has grown exponentially since its founding in 1999 to become the world's biggest business-to-business Web site. In 2007 it became the second largest IPO in history (after Google), and Fast Company has named it one of the world's most innovative companies. As a result, smart investors and technology insiders will be keeping a close eye on Alibaba for years to come. Whether you're seeking to understand China's meteoric rise, or just searching for the next Google, Yahoo!, or Amazon, Alibaba is crucial reading.

    The Money Anxiety Cure - A Path...

    Uncertainty creates anxiety, and we are engaged in a modern collective anxiety known as "money anxiety disorder." Money anxiety disorder lies at the heart of so many of the disruptions that occur in our lives, our society, and our world. It can be triggered by events like fluctuations in the marketplace, job loss, employment instability, divorce, or even just struggling to stay on budget. 
    
    Like the economy itself, our anxiety about money fluctuates. But we don't have to be at the mercy of it. We can learn to cope with unpredictable financial times and silence our panic. There is a cure for money anxiety disorder.
    
    The first step to the cure is to get a handle on the practical ins and outs of your money management. Learning how to budget, set financial goals, create a system for paying bills, and plan wisely for retirement are crucial pragmatic tactics that we all must learn if we are to experience peace and security around money. 
    
    So many of us were raised to believe that financial success and material prosperity are the most important things we can achieve in our lives. But where does that leave us when things don't go well with our bank accounts, when we don't achieve what we think we should have achieved when we expected to achieve it, or worse, when we make a lot of money and experience professional success only to realize we are still not happy? And when the entire world seems to be in an economic downturn, does that mean that we too are doomed to misery? 
    
    This book will not offer you advice on accounting, budgeting, spreadsheets, or numbers. Instead, we'll focus on a deeper cure: how to create financial wellbeing by changing your attitude toward money and creating a realistic and balanced vision for your own personal prosperity. Using mindfulness, reflective journaling, and somatic tools, you'll learn to better manage your anxiety around money-and your life.
