Summary

In this, the second of Geoff Moore's classic three-part marketing series, Moore provides highly useful guidelines for moving products beyond early adopters and into the lucrative mainstream market. Updated for the HarperBusiness Essentials series with a new author's note. 
Once a product "crosses the chasm" it is faced with the "tornado," a make or break time period where mainstream customers determine whether the product takes off or falls flat. In Inside the Tornado, Moore details various marketing strategies that will teach marketers how reach these customers and how to take advantage of living inside the tornado in order to reap the benefits of mainstream adoption.

    Former Wall Street Journal technology reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane delves deep inside Apple in the two years since Steve Jobs’s death, revealing the tensions and challenges CEO Tim Cook and his team face as they try to sustain Jobs’s vision and keep the company moving forward. 
    Steve Jobs's death raised one of the most pressing questions in the tech and business worlds: Could Apple stay great without its iconic leader? Many inside the company were eager to prove that Apple could be just as innovative as it had been under Jobs. Others were painfully aware of the immense challenge ahead. As its business has become more complex and global, Apple has come under intense scrutiny, much of it critical. Maintaining market leadership has become crucial as it tries to conquer new frontiers and satisfy the public's insatiable appetite for "insanely great” products. 
    Based on over two hundred interviews with current and former executives, business partners, Apple watchers and others, Haunted Empire is an illuminating portrait of Apple today that offers clues to its future. With nuanced insights and colorful details that only a seasoned journalist could glean, Kane goes beyond the myths and headlines.  She explores Tim Cook’s leadership and its impact on Jobs’s loyal lieutenants, new product development, and Apple’s relationships with Wall Street, the government, tech rivals, suppliers, the media, and consumers. 
    Hard-hitting yet fair, Haunted Empire reveals the perils and opportunities an iconic company faces when it loses its visionary leader.

    Many of us have at some time toyed with the idea of starting our own businesses or becoming self-employed. There are many positive aspects to being your own boss: you choose the hours you want to work, but it can be daunting, and many of us ditch the dream in favor of the easy yet dreary life, which is why this book is here to help. We’ve thumbed through classic ideas on work and entrepreneurship and placed them in the context of twenty-first century business. The perils of running a company are not new and as far back as the eighteenth century writers such as Benjamin Franklin were advising folk on the best ways to profit from work. If you follow all the ideas in this book before long you may find that work becomes something you can choose to do rather than something you have to do. Now, wouldn’t that be nice? Run your own business brings together some of the greatest ideas on entrepreneurship from four best selling books: Napoleon Hill’s Think and grow rich; Benjamin Franklin’s The way to wealth; George S.Clason’s The richest man in Babylon. These self help classics have inspired generations of readers with simple and effective ideas that continue to resonate today. The wise lessons from these books have been interpreted here using twenty-first century case studies and modern business finance examples. These 50 short, entertaining chapters, which include practical tips and inspiring quotes, are sure to help you set up and run a successful business.
