The Knowledge Advantage is nothing less than a conversation with the world’s knowledge giants. "Knowledge is information put to productive use by people." — Bob Bauer "Conveying knowledge is not the business of conveying nuggets in little pieces; it’s the business of conveying the connections between things." — Stephen Denning "Is there a new high-tech economy? Yes there is and it operates according to increasing rather than diminishing returns. The principles are totally different. It’s like operating beyond the sound barrier, rather than beneath the sound barrier." — W. Brian Arthur

From the Back Cover:

"I would characterize knowledge workers in two ways. Firstly, I would say that they are dismally unproductive, and secondly, that they are not employees, but volunteers, even though they are paid for what they do." — Peter Drucker "As each discipline has created its paradigms, its own jargon, it’s become more and more difficult for knowledge to advance. What’s needed now is consilience, or literally a ‘jumping together’ of the many branches of human knowledge." — Edward O. Wilson "Technology is not an answer, it is an enabler, but what it enables allows organizations to leverage human intellect to produce astounding, breakthrough results that were never before possible — a true innovation explosion." — James Brian Quinn "The shift from crunching to connecting will be as powerful a shift, in terms of the implications and consequences that flow from it, as the shift from railroads to automobiles for the industrial infrastructure." — Stan Davis "Knowledge Advantage is too bloodless a phrase. It is too calm and too polite to describe the battle lines and the stakes of the knowledge revolution." — Alan M. Webber "Nobody can predict the future, but you can understand the forces that will shape the future — and it is always better to play with the forces than against them." — Lester Thurow
