Overview

This vital book takes you deep inside the world's largest and fastest-moving industry. We're talking, of course, about information technology (IT) and the coming trillion-dollar convergence of the 4 Cs - computers, communications, consumer electronics, and content. As these mega-industries collide, the resulting opportunities and turbulence will make the personal computer revolution look like a warm-up act.

In plain language, he makes sense of the crazy-quilt growth of recent times, and orients you to the dizzying world in which you must compete.
