Radical thinking...and a wake-up call. Citing examples from many industries (computers, retailing, pharmaceuticals, automobiles, steel), Clayton M. Christensen explains how to avoid a similar fate. He presents strategies for determining when not to listen to customers, when to pursue small markets at the expense of larger ones, and other ways to ensure long-term growth and profit. This award-winning audiobook shows managers the changes that may be coming: and how to respond for success.

Good concepts for managers and entrepreneurs, but very short and the narration sounds like a bedtime story. For a better value, better narration, and more useful information, see the followup, "The Innovator's Solution" instead.
I got a few very important concepts from this book. As an entrepreneur i was seeking guidance on why my attempts to innovate or invent fell short of the mark and this book highlights some potential reasons why. It definitely fills a piece of the puzzle and given its short length is a must read for all.
Good speaker. The book moved along quickly without adding a lot of fluff. It gets right to the point. Awesome book and great information.
Every business person should read this. Quick, easy and to the point. If you what to know more of the psychology of companies and why they have so many issues with disruptive technologies, read former Intel CEO Andrew S. Grove's book: Only the Paranoid Survive: How to Exploit the Crisis Points That Challenge Every Company.
The concept of this book is awesome but the combination of both the narrator and the way it is written made it hard to bare. I constantly asked myself why I was listening to this but knew it was to learn so I pushed through. Great message being passed but defiantly not the best to read or listen to.
Really dry and nothing earthshattering but business lovers will like it. There are likely more interesting profiles that could have been used for examples.
