4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A relevant conversation, full of quotable material 19 de mayo de 2012
Por Cameron Maddux - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
If you are smartly playing in digital creation, you see many decks and presentations about "what is happening." They always include wonderfully articulated quotes from successful, wise people. And you wonder, "Where did they get that quote?" Well, Velocity quotes are going to be all over decks for the next several months, FYI.

The format is written literally as a conversation between the two authors, Ajaz Ahmed & Stefan Olander. You are most likely grabbing this book because of the titles these people have: Chairman and Co-Founder of AKQA and Vice President, Digital Sport, Nike Inc. Boom. Instant credibility. There is absolutely no need for them to establish their credibility, the web drips with accolades on their digital smarts, creative performance and successes.

The bullet hole cover is fitting, as the book reads like bursts of shots. A smart idea. A great quotable line to sum it up. An anecdote. A quote from another source. Another smart idea, and so on. Each "chapter" closes with a summary, but ironically the book closes with none - it just ends. Well, there is a url and I guess that is the point, conversations keep going online.

As someone who teaches university students in this arena, I found this book has already proven to be quite valuable. As mentioned, the quotes have found their way into my lectures. But more importantly, I have an arsenal of anecdotes from Nike and other cool brands for student questions. The students definitely connect with the stories and the credibility of the authors. It allows me to reinforce my own ideas. The thinking is mostly agreeable, as you'd expect with two people with such a proven track records.

What kept me from giving it 5-stars:
+ I really liked when they included conversations with other people, but there were too few in my opinion. These two are going to have an extensive network, so I'd love to have other perspectives filling out the book's stories and points.

+ It is strange to read an edited conversation. You don't feel like you are over-hearing a conversation (a la Joseph Campbell & Bill Moyers.) You also don't get the normal flow of an industry book. It is an experiment, and it feels that way, both good and bad. I didn't actually "connect" with the material at times; it felt distant and conflicting. But I also enjoyed this, as it made me think and engage with the content, rather than just be led down an author's path.

Overall, good read - and something to read NOW, not later.

...then read this book.

What you shouldn't expect is any through line, anecdotal or scientific evidence of the claims the two authors make, or useful advice for practical application of these "Laws".

I bought it because in the first few pages there is a wonderful description of how MP3 file sharing changed the landscape forever and how the record companies were slow to react and ultimately led themselves into the difficulties they're currently facing by refusing to accept what consumers wanted.

A book full of these sort of real world examples would have illustrated what they're trying to express better than simply attaching labels to conclusions they've made without us having the hindsight and wealth of experience that they do.

It reads like a mutual backslapping contest between two successful executives who to be fair just aren't writers. (Didn't this book have an editor??)

It's full of jargon that is completely out of context:

For example from the book:

"How can people see approaching danger or opportunity so they're not blindsided?"

(Great question! I'm waiting for a wonderful bit of advice, aren't you??)

"One way is to keep a wide lens - much wider than might seem necessary. Notice movement in your peripheral vision. Pick up on the weak signals. Overhear conversations. You are what you read. You are what you do. You are what you experience"

(WTF?)

I'd like to provide a helpful definition from the British Dictionary:

non sequitur |nɒn ˈsɛkwɪtə|
noun
a conclusion or statement that does not logically follow from the previous argument or statement.

In my opinion this book was a quick and easy way for the publisher Vermilion to pump out a book without much behind it in the way of real or practical knowledge as a conversation between two successful executives and sell a few copies to boot.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas interesting read; unusual style 12 de mayo de 2013

This book attempts to set out 7 laws of velocity that the authors feel describe the new ways we should work today. Grounded very much in the commercial world, there is much to reflect on in what they say. Some, if not much, may strike the reader as common sense, but it is often expressed in an easy going conversational style which perhaps facilitates its reception. Each chapter is presented as a conversation between the authors - this was refreshing in the beginning but for me, the novelty wore off towards the end.

While the book might seem very self serving, the authors are merely trying to talk about their own experiences and their own observations. I see nothing wrong with that. What one takes away from the book is completely up to the readers. Give it a try. I like the dialogue/conversation format that they have used.
