Review: "A business innovation in itself" - by Allie Lo "The world is no longer subject to top down direction, but bottom up choice and freedom," says the author of this Kindle ebook on innovation in business. This statement seems to me to be particularly relevant to the publishing revolution created by Amazon with its Kindle, of which this ebook is an excellent product example. This ebook is all about the people in business today and the importance of enhancing their individuality and creativity. With new technology and media, the faceless corporation must give way to a more personalized approach in business if it is to survive. There is a lot to read and ponder in this ebook, but the author hopes to give value for money. Interestingly, an innovation of his in this regard is to consider value from a cost per reading-hour stance. He points out that weighty tomes don't give value if it takes hours to plough through them for little information. The author has borne his own words in mind when giving us an extremely interesting read full of new ways of looking at business. "Remove everything that doesn't add value," he advises, "and simplify everything else." For too long have business and economics been dense with jargon, making what should be a simple process seem impenetrable to customers and business people alike. This Kindle ebook is no less than a revolution in itself, if a small one. The author refers to it as 'short,' but it's long enough to get its very pertinent points across and to help us make sense of a whole new business model. I would recommend it to anyone interested in companies, how they work and how they should work, whether business insider or customer. In fact, I think that it has much to offer our whole lives, not just the business end of them.
