Product Overview

Get ready for a whole new world--a world of blur in which traditional boundaries between product and service, capital and people, buyer and seller, and real and virtual no longer apply. Stan Davis and Christopher Meyer have a front row seat to these tectonic changes and, in this groundbreaking book, they not only define the phenomenon but show businesses large and small how to thrive.

"As a guide to surviving in the new business world, this is most intriguing and entertaining."
"The authors are most skillful at using scientific analogies to expand their argument....[Their] intellectual tangents run the gamut from biology to history to the latest news. At no time, however, do they appear to be overextending themselves in making these connections, something that helps elevate BLUR above the raft of future-shock books already on the market."
