The industrial age is over. The new economy depends on creativity, innovation and entrepreneurialism. IT guru Maynard Webb and business writer Carlye Adler don’t break any new ground in this short book, but they stand out from many authors who announce a new age of opportunity and never tell you what to do about it.

You’ll discover new tools for personal and team productivity, including many you can download and start using right away. Whether you’re a student, new in your career, at a crossroads or thinking about becoming self-employed – roll up your sleeves and dive in. getAbstract recommends this guide’s real-world advice as a source of practical inspiration.
