Editorial Reviews

Review

A Wall Street Journal and Businessweek bestseller. Named by Fast Company as one of the most influential leadership books in its Leadership Hall of Fame.

“His book, one of the most significant business books of the past 50 years, became a mammoth bestseller, and its title entered the language.” — Fortune magazine

“Christensen’s The Innovator’s Dilemma is the foundational read for managing disruptive innovation.” — Steve Blank, Silicon Valley serial-entrepreneur and academician, as seen in strategy+business magazine

“This is an important read, even if you’re at the very early stages of growing a startup.” — Drew Houston, CEO, Dropbox

Praise for The Innovator’s Dilemma and Clayton M. Christensen:

Forbes
“[Clayton Christensen is] one of the most influential business theorists of the last fifty years.”

The Financial Times
The Innovator’s Dilemma achieves a rare feat: It is at once a satisfying intellectual solution to a long-standing business puzzle and a practical guide for executives and investors.”

Wired
“. . . Required reading in Silicon Valley, where it has been championed by the likes of Steve Jobs, George Gilder, and Andy Grove.”

The Huffington Post
“A seminal book.”

Bloomberg Businessweek
“A holy book for entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley . . .”

Fortune
“The notion of ‘disruptive technology’ is one of the timeliest ideas of the Internet age. Coined by Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen, it’s at the heart of his influential book The Innovator’s Dilemma.”

About the Author

Clayton M. Christensen is the Kim B. Clark Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. He is the author of eight critically acclaimed books, including the bestsellers The Innovator’s Solution, How Will You Measure Your Life?, and Disrupting Class. Christensen is the cofounder of Innosight, a management consultancy; Rose Park Advisors, an investment firm; and the Innosight Institute, a nonprofit think tank.
