In the innovator’s dilemma Clayton Christensen focused on specific markets, and how technology can disrupt them. In 1998, in an executive briefing in Stanford University he told a story about consulting to Intel executives, right after the innovator’s dilemma was published, and how Andrew grove, the founder and then Intel CEO said this is not disruptive technology, but rather trivial technology with a disruptive implementation. The discussion and the graph are taken from my book, Bowling with a Crystal Ball: How to Predict technology trends, create disruptive implementations and navigate them through industry.

I needed to read this book for an extra credit project. I ordered it and it arrived in a timely manner and in good condition. The book itself was fairly interesting. It was very detailed and discussed a lot about micro chips. Solomon used a lot of his own knowledge of the industry, which was nice. Having the inside view was nice, but at times it seemed a bit biased. This was a little more in depth than what I needed for the class, but overall a good read. I definitely felt smarter after reading it!

I would definitely recommend Bowling with a Crystal Ball to ones who are either involved in a technology venture or about to be engaged in such. This could be an enjoyable read for ones who seek perspective on how to blend between anticipating technology disruptions and executing towards that vision.

The author is sharing his own real life personal experience along with theoretical examples which makes this book easy to associate with on a practical manor.

Yoram's book lives up to and even surpasses its catchy title, which by itself will provoke rueful smiles from anyone in the tech world. The book hits upon and explains a nascent but important trend today--- namely the creation of new markets using a range of disruptive and collaborative techniques and the massive stakes involved. Anyone who wants to understand what technology ecosystems are and their impact will find this book essential reading. I particularly liked the sections on derivative disruption and implementations, standards development organizations, and technology trending.

Another great feature of this book is it talks to you not at you. It's written clearly and it's easy to understand--Yoram's style is engaging and draws you in.

I would have no hesitation in recommending it highly to corporate technologists and market planners, management consultants, and people involved in analyzing and mapping technology portfolios and plans. I also think MBA students (and curriculums) will find it of great value.

You won't be disappointed with this book

This book presents a useful analysis of the evolution of electronic technology from its recent past to the present and future trends.

The electronics- technology entrepreneur and the investor will both benefit from reading this book. "Bowling with a Crystall Ball" will help them analyze the past and make the best predictions and decisions affecting their next venture.

It is a very sobering read when one realizes the vertiginous speed at which changes have occured in the electronics industry over the last 30 years and realize that the "ball" keeps accelerating.

I highly recommend this book

Solomon delivers on the book's premise...big time! In a very readable style, he offers creative concepts and well-researched examples promoting how deliberate versus random innovation can be applied to new products; with particular focus on predicting how existing technologies can disrupt and create value not only in their primary markets, but secondary markets, as well. Worthy of several reads.

Well written and interesting. A critically important and under-investigated aspect of technology business management. Will be very appealing to budding strategists and business managers in the technology space. Must-read for seasoned managers in diverse industries.

Yoram's book provides an outstanding framework for thinking about disruptive technology. Easy to read and based on the author's own experience and observations, includes many examples.
