- ''Starfish'' challenges the command and control economy with the power of participatory consumers. From eBay to Google, Skype to Craig's List, inspired individuals are catalyzing a marked shift from hierarchies to the wisdom of crowds. Ori and Rod provide sharp insights into how to avoid becoming the next victim of this market populism; or if you are so inclined, the strategies to take on those vulnerable incumbents. +

Reading ''The Starfish and the Spider'' is like jumping into the minds of two visionaries who can see possibilities for our world that others can not hope to even imagine. But the great thrill of this book is that these two authors are visionaries who have already achieved extraordinary accomplishments in this world - they know how to make visions incarnate. That's why you need to read this book. They see the world the way it can be.

''The Starfish and the Spider'', like ''Blink'', ''The Tipping Point'', and ''The Wisdom of Crowds'' before it, showed me a provocative new way to look at the world and at business. It's also fun to read! It's a quick read, but a profound one. Every CEO should think about what aspects of catalyst leadership they embody, or can embody, for the good of their company.

I wish I would have read this book before fighting with my fellow Marines in Fallujah. If we are going to realize any success in our countrinsurgencies around the world, we had better do more to understand our adversary. Drawing on both the public and private sectors, Starfish and the Spider develops a fascinating paradigm. It is a must read for any officer seeking new approaches for unconventional war.

Before I read ''The Starfish and The Spider'', I often felt like I was bobbing alone in a sea of old ideas in how I chose to manifest and guide an organization or project. Now my instincts are affirmed and I go forth with greater insight, confidence and words to articulate my ideas. And of course, I am on the lookout for other starfish.

I'd suggest adding to the list the upcoming ''The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations'', by Ori Brafman and Rod Beckstrom. It's another great look at how we can often be more effective by subverting hierarchy rather than following it.
