The 80/20 principle is the cornerstone of results-based living. Read this book and use it. — Tim Ferriss, author of 'The 4-Hour Workweek'
For the 20th-anniversary edition [Koch] has added new chapters that bring it right up to date. Much has been written about the New Economy over the past couple of decades and a lot of it has been found to have been misguided,... but Koch seems to have put his finger on one of the things that marks out the real winners in this new era... networks. We should be grateful that, thanks to Koch and those whose ideas he has built upon, we have a better notion of what is going on. — Roger Trapp, Forbes
A classic... the 20th anniversary edition that has been rewritten and warmed up to address how the world has changed since the digital revolution. But the 80/20 rule itself remains as rock solid as it was when it was first described by 19th-century Italian engineer Vilfredo Pareto. A genuine management must-read. — E&T magazine
Time management is not about organising your daily tasks, it is about organising your essential daily tasks, and dumping the rest. Koch has made millions from this - a bestseller based on just one idea - proving that it works. — GQ's 25 Best Business Books
Congratulations! The 80/20 Principle is terrific. — Al Ries
There are ideas in here that could change your life. — The Good Book Guide
Both astute and entertaining, this is an intriguing book to help people concentrate on not wasting their lives. — Professor Theodore Zeldin, St Anthony's College, Oxford

Reinventing Capitalism in the Age of Big Data

Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, Thomas Ramge
Authors:
Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, Thomas Ramge

Markets have long been acknowledged to be a superior mechanism for managing resources but until the advent of big data, they largely functioned better in theory than in practice. Now, as ideal markets are within reach because of vastly greater access to information, we are on the verge of a major disruption. As data becomes a more valuable asset than cash, the rules for surviving and thriving are changing.Reinventing Capitalism is a provocative look at how data is reinventing markets and, in so doing, is ushering in an era where the firm is no longer predominant. With richer and more comprehensive information about human wants and needs, an economy powered by data offers the possibility of increased abundance, equality, and resilience. The data-driven markets that will thrive in this environment are far better than firms at organizing human endeavors, meaning that finance driven capitalism is being displaced by its more efficient, more sustainable, and more democratic disruptor: data capitalism.
