THE NET EFFECT
Will the Internet be a Panacea or Curse
for Business and Society in the Next Ten Years?
By: Iain Williamson
HOW THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU
The Internet will bring about the greatest change to society and business since the Industrial Revolution of the late 18th century.
If so - are you ready to meet the challenge?
Is your company ready?
THE NET EFFECT tries to show you who will be the winners and losers in this brave new economic order. It recognizes that, as a good manager (be it in business, government or personal finance), you must anticipate change and take steps to meet the challenge head-on. It tries to prepare you for what may lie in wait.
Unlike other Internet books, THE NET EFFECT does not concern itself with how many mouse clicks it takes you to reach the Vatican Library or how long it will take you to download the Microsoft Explorer. It rises above the clicking and waiting in front of your computer monitor to take a look at what the digital world around you may be like ten years from now.
