An Excellent Guide - For Today and Tomorrow
This collection of articles provides an excellent overview of the key changes occuring in the network economy.
Tapscott's introduction alone is worth the price of the book, as he succinctly and insightfully overviews and integrates the primary issues affecting today's businesses in the new economy.
The selected articles explore critical issues, including the changes in what consumers value and the implications for new and existing busineses; the disaggreagtion of firms and the creation of digital networks; and the shift in power from suppliers to buyers and the imperatives for businesses if they are to gain buyers' long-term trust and loyalty.
Some of the articles may be "old" as measured by publication date, but the concepts contained in them certainly are not. This book is definitely worth reading if you're trying to build a lasting corporation in the network economy.
(on the other hand, for those looking to just get rick quick, there's always "Daytrading Success Secrets")

Seminial is never 'old'
Here's a book that I will keep within my grasp for years to come. Tapscott has pulled together in one easy read the seminal works of some of the greatest management thinkers of this and any other year. To call this work dated is to consider any great piece of thinking old as soon as it's out of the box. That's exactly the mindset we need to get away from.
I recommend this book to anyone looking to the future by drawing from current, as well as proven, ideas.
