The Digital Economy (20th Anniversary Edition)

In 1994 Don Tapscott released The Digital Economy – arguably the first best-selling book about the Internet. The book hit the charts quickly and lasted, for example 7 months on the BusinessWeek best sellers list.

In this new edition, Tapscott updates the book with a sweeping new analysis of how the Net (as he called it then) has changed business and society in the last 20 years.

The Digital Economy was first published as a follow up to Don Tapscott's highly influential Paradigm Shift. Tapscott took readers to the epicenter of the transformation, revealing the then new convergence of the computing, telecommunications, entertainment, and information industries. 

Now, 20 years after the original publication of The Digital Economy, Don Tapscott goes back to his original analyses to discuss what he got right and what he got wrong – putting this seminal work in an historical context. The original edition will feature new essays by Don Tapscott at the end of each chapter which updates his original thinking. Keeping the original text intact, along with the new essays, will be of interest to everyone who read the first edition as well as a whole new generation of readers who have "grown up digital" in a world that has been highly influenced by Don Tapscott.


Don Tapscott is one of the world's leading authorities on innovation, media, and the economic and social impact of technology. Named one of the world's most important living management thinkers by Thinkers50, he advises business and government leaders around the globe.
