Early in the 21st century, a quiet revolution occurred. For the first time, the major developed economies began to invest more in intangible assets, like design, branding, R&D, or software, than in tangible assets, like machinery, buildings, and computers. For all sorts of businesses, from tech firms and pharma companies to coffee shops and gyms, the ability to deploy assets that one can neither see nor touch is increasingly the main source of long-term success.

A great book about intangible assets, how they have increased its importance in our economy, what macroeconomic impact and regulatory requirements that should be considered and how to manage business with regards to intangible assets. I will recommend this book for people with interest for finance, management and regulatory macroeconomic factors.

The digital age we live in is as transformative as the Industrial Revolution, and Joshua Cooper Ramo explains how to survive. If you find yourself longing for a disconnected world where information is not always at your fingertips, you may eventually be as useful as the carriage maker post-Henry Ford. It's practically impossible to know where the marriage of imagination and technology will take us (sorry, Betamax and Kodak), and the only certainty is that in the networked world we will only become more intertwined.

The impact technology has on the society is well known; why and how, is very well described in this book. The book has a combination of historical perspectives, modern theories and futuristic views. Joshua Cooper Ramo also narrates this book in a great way. I do recommend this book for those who wish to gain better understanding of modern power distribution in the world.

Nicely read and easy written! As an experienced project manager I didn't learn anything new, but a good walk through of the theory of project management with realistic examples!
