Description


Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Sir Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg have all said that that change or growth happen from the bottom up.

But what does it mean and how do you do “bottom up” better and smarter? Bottom up is a way of life and a way of doing business. The Bottom-Up Revolution: Mastering the Emerging World of Connectivity, picks up where Malcolm Gladwell’s Tipping Point left off. It is a how-to book for businesses, leaders, organizations, activists, and individuals, cracking wide-open humankind’s biggest trend in seven million years. By understanding the roots and implications of “bottom up” and “top down” you’ll be better able to tap the incredible power of this trend, as the billionaire founders of Google, Facebook, Craigslist and Twitter have done.

"Synopsis: Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Sir Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg have all said that change or growth happen from the bottom up. But what does it mean and how do you do ‘bottom up’ better and smarter? Essentially, bottom up is a way of life and a way of doing business. In ‘The Bottom-Up Revolution: Mastering the Emerging World of Connectivity’, award-winning journalist, inventor, software architect, connector and visionary Rob Kall picks up where Malcolm Gladwell's seminal book ‘Tipping Point’ left off. It is basically a how-to book for businesses, leaders, organizations, activists, and individuals, cracking wide-open humankind's biggest trend in seven million years. By understanding the roots and implications of ‘bottom up’ and ‘top down’ corporate executives and business leaders will be better able to tap the incredible power of this trend, just as the billionaire founders of Google, Facebook, Craigslist and Twitter have done. Critique: Drawing upon informative and illustrative interviews from more than one hundred 'bottom up thought leaders' ranging from jack Dorsey, Howard Zinn, Naomi Klein, and Riane Eisler, to Josephy Nye, George Lakoff, and Medea Benjamin, ‘The Bottom-up Revolution: Mastering the Emerging World of Connectivity’ is an extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, college, and academic library Business Management & Entrepreneurial Leadership collections and supplemental studies lists. It should be noted for personal reading lists that ‘The Bottom-Up Revolution’ is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $12.07)." — Michael DunfordMidwest Book Review
