Publisher's Summary

Brace yourself for enormous changes ahead. Familiar fixtures of the economic landscape, including retail stores, physical products, corporations, and even human workers, are about to be vaporized - replaced by digital information. A novel combination of new technologies - mobile, cloud, crowd, artificial intelligence - are reconfiguring every economic sector and industrial system on the planet. Even industries that were long considered immune to digital transformation are suddenly vulnerable to rapid dematerialization: now automobiles, hotels, health care, and higher education can be replaced by an app-enabled marketplace. The process of vaporization is relentless and all-pervasive. For consumers this change is as bewildering as it is exhilarating. But for the CEOs of old-school firms, the change is terrifying. And for startup Internet companies, it's the greatest landgrab since the Gold Rush. In Vaporized, innovation expert Robert Tercek shows us how this process works and takes us to the front line of digital transformation. Tercek provides an essential guide to this vaporized world, with proven strategies for those who want to master the process.

Brilliant Book, brilliant insights

I'm a college professor, and love learning. I cannot of learned more than from this book. The insights and points of view that Robert Tercek gave you are nothing short of brilliant. I honestly feel as though this book should be required reading for all university professors, CEOs and entrepreneurs. The book is read by narrator Tim Welch and eight fast, informative style that makes this very dense content easy to listen to. Clearly I recommend is highly.

Very thorough

I loved this as it got me thinking a lot about my business and what may happen in the future in my area. Maybe tries to cover too much even in the last chapter but that is pure brain food.

Took my time to get used to the voice with me being from the uk but once that happened it was bearable ;-)
