Disrupt Yourself looks at how to achieve your goals and permanently alter the stays quo through the art of self-disruption
In Disrupt Yourself, Jay Samit, a serial digital entrepreneur and intrapreneur in the music, video and entertainment world, writes an engaging part-autobiography, part-personal philosophy and anecdote-rich tome on how to succeed in today’s business world. Disruptive innovation is a process by which a product or service takes root in simple applications at the bottom of a market and then relentlessly moves upmarket, eventually displacing established competitors. A highly motivational and easy-to-read book, its ultimate message is that if you don’t embrace disruptive innovation, you will be left behind yourself.
