Reviews

"The blockchain is one of the most fundamental inventions in the history of computer science. Read Blockchain Revolution to understand its profound implications."
--Marc Andreessen, cofounder, Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz

"The Tapscotts have written the book, literally, on how to survive and thrive in this next wave of technology-driven disruption. Likely to become one of the iconic books of our time."
--Clay Christensen, author of The Innovator's Dilemma

"Everywhere thoughtful people are trying to understand this revolutionary technology and how it might change the world. Team Tapscott has stepped up and written the book we've been waiting for."
--Dan Schulman, CEO, Paypal

"Occasionally a book comes along that changes the global discourse. This is likely to be one of those books. Blockchains are at the heart of the fourth industrial revolution and the Tapscotts lucidly explain why and how to capture the opportunity and avoid the dangers."

"A carefully researched and beautifully written book. Blockchain Revolution argues that the 'Internet of value' will transform our lives. A must-read book for our disruptive times."
