“A book that is both a pleasure to read and a valuable corrective to the gloom that currently envelopes us…Easterbrook tells his story well, with social portraiture, striking facts and sharp anecdotes aimed at puncturing common misconceptions about economic change…As for the economic crisis that has just nearly ruined us, Mr. Easterbrook reminds us, in one of the many apercus that enliven “Sonic Boom,” that capitalism is the only economic system in history that is rendered stronger by its own instability.” – Wall Street Journal, 12/29/09
“Sonic Boom is the thinking person’s Future Shock.” Carl Schramm, President, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
“Sonic Boom is the business book you must read”—Eric Schmidt, Chairman/CEO of Google Inc.
“I strongly recommend this book to everyone who wants deep insights into the future without either excessive optimism or pessimism.”—Gary Becker, University of Chicago economist, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics and Presidential Medal of Freedom
“Better than any other, this book explains why the future of our world is still a globalized future, one in which the increasing speed of change will directly affect us all.
