At the heart of The Innovator's Dilemma is how a successful company with established products keeps from being pushed aside by newer, cheaper products that will, over time, get better and become a serious threat. Christensen writes that even the best-managed companies, in spite of their attention to customers and continual investment in new technology, are susceptible to failure no matter what the industry, be it hard drives or consumer retailing. Succinct and clearly written, The Innovator's Dilemma is an important book that belongs on every manager's bookshelf. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards --

Anyone who's tried day trading can tell you about the frayed nerves and upset stomach that come with following stocks by the hour. But try following their tiny movements day in and day out for a year, with $2 billion hanging on your decisions, and you'll have an idea of what it's like to manage a mutual fund. In mid-1998, reporter Molly Baker tagged along with Jerry Frey, manager of Delaware Investments' top-performing growth funds, and recorded his thoughts, actions, and conversations as he and his team tried to beat out 860 other funds for first place. What emerges is a portrait of a man with intestinal fortitude, a knack for numbers, and an uncanny understanding of market psychology. When a junior manager prepares to sell a rising stock at $30, Frey tells him to lower his target to $29 5/8; there may be a hundred other fund managers thinking, "I'll sell when it hits $30," but there may not be a hundred buyers willing to pay $30. "I've told you not to think in round numbers," Frey cautions.
If you're thinking about day trading for a living, take a cold shower and then read The Day Traders. If you read the book first, you may not need the shower. If you do both and still want to day trade, you may well have what it takes to succeed, and this book will certainly help. Gregory J. Millman, a financial journalist and author of The Vandal's Crown, tells a behind-the-scenes story of how technology and scandal brought bucket shops to cyberspace, how ordinary folks, exploiting the disintegration of the old order, are becoming gunslingers in an extreme financial video game offering danger to all who try it and limitless rewards to those few who succeed. --Scott Harrison You've got a hot idea for a new dot-com, and you're itching to join the folks who regularly show up on CNBC and at the Lexus dealerships in Silicon Valley. But you also know your odds of big-time success are about as long as Bill Gates's position in MSFT. What do you do? John Nesheim, an adjunct professor at Cornell's Johnson Graduate School of Management, who has personally structured over $300 million in new-venture deals, lays out the step-by-step skinny in High Tech Startup. Incorporating some two dozen case studies spanning the technology spectrum, he presents info specific to this industry that will help you get from concept to IPO. It begins with a 14-phase schedule itemizing time requirements, necessary assistance, typical participants, major costs, main risks, and desired results for each step. It then details all the critical stages (i.e., forming the company, preparing the business plan, assembling the team, dealing with venture capitalists and other funding sources). Nesheim focuses on practical strategies that should certainly improve your chances, but don't start prepping for that on-air interview with Mark Haines just yet: Only six out of 1 million high-tech ideas, he notes, ever become successful companies that go public. --Howard Rothman

In the world of venture capital, investors look for deals that will return 10 to 20 times their original investment, although sometimes they do much, much better. Venture capitalists are looking for many things: not only a company that can dominate a business category, but one that will eventually be worth at least a half-billion dollars. And even if an entrepreneur can present a business plan that looks as if it can deliver a company of that size and prominence, the VC has to have confidence in that businessperson before time and money get invested in the startup. This is about as complete a manual as an entry-level entrepreneur could hope for. Harmon not only covers the basics of searching for capital, he offers inspirational stories of the true VC successes (, Netscape, @Home) and includes interviews with the VCs themselves, letting them say in their own words how they pick the winners, and how you can become one of them. --Lou Schuler

The author, , September 25, 1998 To Be Known as the Forecaster of Governmental Collapses ... ... is not really how I want to be known from my writing career. Yet, I do have a chapter on a forecast. In Chapter 21: Never Overtrade; Trading Correctly Is More Important Than You Think, I forecasted that we would see an impending collapse of world governments due to inordinate trading of derivatives and their related products. As of this mention (9-25-98) we have seen massive governments collapse. This book was written in 1996 and forecasted this inevitability. So much for that hype. The reader will find that this second volume on trading strategies takes off from Volume 1. These strategies are more complex and requires more thinking. The reader is shown how the effect of stock splits can erase the stock's past. Arbitrage is defined explicitly for the reader and I tell the reader how he can simply apply arbitrage techniques in all forms of action, from the marketplace to one's own life. The complete "marketing" of a stock, from a low price to a high price, to a naive public is what is uppermost in the company's mind. The use of many strategies for the facilitating the transfer of stock ownership from strong hands to weak hands is the primary concern of stock distributors. Readers will find many of these strategies implemented daily. Discovering what they are will help the readers be more cautious and better investors. The concept of hybrid trading is shown to the reader whereby the trader must shift his thinking from a short term loser to a long term winner. Details are explicit and the readers will find reasons on how this is done. The "Eng" principle is illustrated: how recent mergers and acquisitions in companies continue and breed incompetent managers. The reader will find more insight into how the market really operates for the benefit of insiders. As "outsiders" you must know what is going on in order to avoid losing money. These are some of things I would like to be known for. The last forecast I would like to be known for is the one in which I forecast the collapse of governments through horrendous trading. The recent debacle with hedge funds (Long-Term Capital, e.g.) has wide-ranging ramifications which have yet to surface. Reading this book will help you cue in on what to expect ...
Online Investing is a wonderful guide for using the Internet to find, research, and buy winning stocks. Jon D. Markman, managing editor at MSN MoneyCentral Investor, writes that the Internet makes it easy to build a highly profitable portfolio. "It just takes discipline, a computer, the Web and the barest amount of commitment and interest." The first section of the book explains how to operate MoneyCentral's Investment Finder, a "market X-ray machine" for screening equities for fast-growing earnings, sales, market capitalizations, daily volume, and other criteria. It's a remarkably simple technique for assembling portfolios based on momentum, value, or growth investing. Unusually lucid and readable, the book helps investors get the most out of Web sites such as Yahoo! Finance,,, and A former columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Markman is a champion of online discussion groups, which he calls "the one resource that can keep pace with the market's fearsome flood of information." Online Investing is for both beginning and experienced investors who aspire to be at the forefront of personal finance on the Internet. --Dan Ring
You don't have to look far to see that technology is driving today's economy. Turn on CNBC, open The Economist, scan the Wall Street Journal--you'll find that technology is the prime force creating growth in almost every industry. In Unleashing the Killer App, authors Larry Downes and Chunka Mui look at the dynamics of technological change and its potential to create "killer apps." The authors describe a killer app as a product or service that "wind up displacing unrelated older offerings, destroying and re-creating industries far from their immediate use, and throwing into disarray the complex relationships between business partners, competitors, customers, and regulators of markets." Examples of killer apps throughout history include the Welsh longbow, the pulley, the compass, moveable type, and the Apple Macintosh. And today, with our increasingly networked economy (for example, the World Wide Web), killer apps are appearing all around us. --Harry C. Edwards

The Motley Fool, Randy Befumo Ben Graham is single-handedly responsible for the fact that investors even think about ratios like the price/earnings ratio, the current ratio or working capital-to-market capitalization. Coming out of the stock market's total implosion in 1929 and throughout the '30s, Graham knew that he needed to discover logical rules that any investor could use in order to attain safe, sustainable, market-beating results. He was so preoccupied with ensuring that anyone could duplicate his methods towards the end of his career that he often told his junior analysts at Graham-Newman like Albert Schloss or Warren Buffett that they could not involve themselves in complicated financial shenanigans to make money--it all had to be plain vanilla.
David S. Pottruck, president and co-CEO of Charles Schwab, and Terry Pearce, founder of Leadership Communication, are among those who believe the Net will forever change the way business is conducted--if it hasn't done so already. In Clicks and Mortar, they draw on personal experience to suggest corporate officials prepare for this new reality by refocusing their practices, principles, and passions on the real needs of a 21st-century company. The book's first section, "Culture at the Core," identifies corporate culture as today's primary driver of growth and explores ways to create, improve, and sustain it ("through language, image, and ritual") for the wired era. The book's second section, "Leadership Practices," examines the way our technology-dominated environment impacts organizational behavior and the qualities leaders must possess (personal integrity and open communication) to inspire the "breakthrough thinking" needed to thrive. The third section, "Management Practices," investigates basic tools like measurement, marketing, and customer relations and describes how they can be updated for this brave new cyberworld. An additional chapter brings together eight business and academic players, including Microsoft's Steve Ballmer and Novell's Eric Schmidt, to speculate on the future of commerce. If you're not afraid to use "organizational transformation" and "personal change" in the same sentence, you'll find value here. --Howard Rothman
