Allow me to summarize the book for you: Every good business idea that has happened in the last 150 years is a "blue ocean" idea.
There. You've read it. Now move on.
It's just OK. Not much left. Simply emphasized that we need to find a niche market and protect it. That's all. The only thing new is to use the new term "blue ocean" instead of "niche market"
It's not a fiction book. Why did you ask this question? Nobody will make this into a movie.
I liked this book overall but it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat. The narration was bland and monotonous. I liked the case studies but the conclusions seemed mechanical. Since the concept was strong I still ejoyed the book but it felt long to me.
Very insightful.A new way of looking at innovation. I recommend this book to any company executive in search of growth strategies in a competitive market space.
Heard about this book for many years. Finally I read it, and found it far better and much more attuned to what I worked with than expected. Far more practical and usable than expected, while still delivering a sharply intellectual description.
This book should be read by everyone serious about their business.. I cannot believe I lived this many years without having read it. Do your family a favor and absorb this knowledge.
The material covered in this book is important and helpful in growth strategy. However, most of the overall concept is covered in the first section of the book. After that the book becomes so monotonous. The detail is very specific. For the business analyst or post grad student this would be great reference material. Reading the book cover to cover is painful. The narrator does a good job, considering the material.
