Publisher's Summary

How to achieve your goals and permanently alter the status quo through the art of self-disruption.

In Disrupt Yourself, innovator and digital media expert Jay Samit reveals how to achieve your goals and permanently alter the status quo through the art of self-disruption. In today's ever-changing and often-volatile business landscape, adaptability and creativity are more crucial than ever. Samit describes how specific strategies that help companies flourish - challenging assumptions, pinpointing one's unique value, and identifying weaknesses in the structure of current industries - can be applied at an individual level.

Incorporating stories from his own experience and anecdotes from other innovators and disruptive businesses - including Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, YouTube, ooVoo and many more - Samit shows how personal transformation can reap entrepreneurial and professional rewards.

Disrupt Yourself offers clear and empowering advice for anyone looking to break through a creative barrier; anyone with a big idea but no idea how to apply it; and anyone worried about being made irrelevant in an era of technological transformation.

This engaging, perspective-shifting book demystifies the mechanics of disruption for individuals and businesses alike.

Great inspiring read

A must read for anyone who is considering starting a diseuptive business - or any startup actually -. This book is filled with examples from many fields.

The author identifies key concepts and patterns in each industry and in the startups that diseupted those fields.

It gave me a great motivation boost and a set of good thoughts and ideas to hold on to and sync into my mind.

There's a bit of repetition about the companies the author worked for.

unoriginal, unconnected collection of stories.

Initially I was highly excited about learning new ways to reinvent and disrupt my own thinking process. The book does not offer any original ideas in this regard other than set goals, set a deadline, don't think negative.... etc.
Not very helpful to someone who has read most of the self-development literature gems out there. I only made it to the 6th chapter and cannot continue any longer.

Great insights

Would you listen to Disrupt Yourself again? Why?

This book can inspire one to look for true use cases that are not immediately obvious or intended. We could all learn from his cunning and innovation, and the ability to kill or pivot an idea.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to it on repeat for a whole month!

Great business book. Fresh perspective

I bought this thinking that it's a personal development book, which it's not. It's a business book about finding new markets/products in modern business. This is NOT a self help book about changing your thinking.
