Review

Toronto Star Bestseller
Globe and Mail Bestseller 


“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.” 
—Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman, World Economic Forum 
 
“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.” 
—Dominic Barton, global managing director, McKinsey & Company 
 
“Don and Alex brilliantly illuminate the technology that could profoundly impact the way we manage issues of trust, security, and privacy for years to come.” 
—Indra Nooyi, chairman and CEO, PepsiCo 
 
“The great missing element in the Internet has been a ‘trust protocol,” a way of knowing that a transaction is verified and authentic. Blockchain technology could provide a foun­dation for that. It’s a revolutionary idea, and this lucid book explains why.” 
—Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs 
 
“What a spectacular book. Mind-blowing in its expansiveness and profundity. It makes me think we’re at one of those times in technological, economic, and social history where the sky is the limit.” 
—Steve Wozniak, cofounder, Apple Computer and chief scientist, Prime Data --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
