There is no doubt that Steve Case, the founder of AOL and Chairman of Time Warner, is a brilliant businessman. I wish I could say the same for his book: The Third Wave.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good book. But it’s not great. There’s nothing in this book that grabbed me. The ideas were all things I’ve heard before.
The most interesting part is where he explains why the merger of Time Warner and AOL failed. It seems like he’s still upset about the whole thing, which I guess he should be.
If you’re busy, I would skip this book. Not enough meat on the bone!
