Reviews
Mr. Carr's provocations are destined to influence CEOs and the boards and investors that support them as companies grapple with the constant change of the digital age.
The best read so far about the significance of the shift to cloud computing.
Future Shock for the Web-apps era...Compulsively readable--for nontechies, too--as it compellingly weaves together news stories, anecdotes, and data.
Exceedingly good.
The Big Switch is thought-provoking and an enjoyable read, and the history of American electricity that makes up the first half of the book is riveting stuff.
Carr stimulates, provokes and entertains superbly.
