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.
there are some heavy concepts in this book. I wonder if I would have captured the knowledge better if read the book. I find my self rewinding often but I found that a good thing. pay close attention and take notes this book taught me a lot
If you work somewhere where you work or drive innovation, I would recommend reading this book. It has some interesting perspectives on when and what types of innovation are successful. It may taking some thought to apply this to your situation, but read it and see what you learn.
I needed to listen to this three times to fully grasp the content due to how densely written it is. The content itself was extremely helpful for understanding different phenomena I've seen in business.
