The Age of Speed shows this and other groundbreaking revelations at work with case studies drawn from renegade companies such as Snapple, Netflix, Samsung, and Geico. And in the tradition of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point, a storyteller’s voice enlivens its provocative research and counterintuitive insights. ‘The Age of Speed is your bible to surf the speed tsunami that’s overtaking business and life.’ ? Scott Cook, chairman and co-founder, Intuit ‘Thought-provoking . . . It’s time to make peace with the whoosh of your 24/7 lifestyle.’ ? Time ‘[Vince Poscente’s] counterintuitive notion of embracing speed rather than coping with it will change the way people live and work.’ ? Stephen M. R. Covey, author of The Speed of Trust
