I extensively use Blue Ocean Strategy with my clients to help them find and dominate uncontested market space. I have seen first hand, how their research can be applied to mid-sized corporations regardless of industry. My clients commend the 'ease of use' of the Strategy Canvas in identifying how they should position their organizations to create vast blue oceans. A must read for any business leaders looking to achieve profitable and sustainable corporate growth. Robert Schmidt Prophet Strategies

Can someone explain to me why the nook edition costs $16.47, while the Kindle edition costs just $9.88 and even the hardcover edition costs just $13.47? I like my nook Color, but I refuse to be taken advantage of like this. Wise up B&N . . ! (The comment system forces us to pick a rating, so I picked "above average". I have been told that it is a very good book.)

    Review from an MBA student

    The authors have provided a good variety of analytcal tools for use in business and in formulating business decisions. However, I felt like they were redundant in stating their results on particular information. For example, I thought the first chapter could have been shortened by 10 pages without losing any of its' meaningful content.
    In terms of their strategies I don't think they provided anything original. They were just stating the obvious in terms of 20-20 hindsight when analyzing what they say are Blue Ocean strategies. They took information from companies and told you what worked and what didn't. Anyone can do that.
    The analytical tools are what should be taken from the book and used by the reader in his or her strategic decisions.
