ADVANCE PRAISE FOR UBERNOMICS
"Ubernomics is über-needed by any organization that wants to be around in the next five years. Read it and you'll be here for fifty--and more! Barbara Gray is half brilliant analyst and half seer. The result is a book that is both crystal clear and a crystal ball."
--Joey Reiman, Chairman, BrightHouse and Managing Director, The Boston Consulting Group
"Barbara is one of the most astute and forward-looking analysts who covered lululemon. Ubernomics gave me a framework to think about the sharing economy capital structure and the value that can be gained from that."
--Christine Day, CEO, Luvo (former CEO, lululemon)
"Barbara's overall analysis centering on the three new values of advocacy, connection and collaboration is very powerful. And the examples, both of firms born in the new economy and others trying to adapt to it, are fascinating."
--Jean-Claude Larreche, Professor of Marketing, INSEAD, and author of The Momentum Effect
"Barbara has an impressive vision for the future. Ubernomics is fast-paced and a great foreshadowing of how technology and the empowered consumer will re-shape the Fortune 1000."
--Andrew Reid, Founder, Vision Critical
"Thoroughly researched, Ubernomics highlights the trends that are rapidly up-ending the ways customers, companies, and communities are interacting and building new business models. To ignore, defer or arrogantly dismiss understanding this shift towards ubernomics will come at a price; just ask Blockbuster, the taxi industry and a slew of other companies hiding behind regulatory or monopolistic practices of the past. I'm looking forward to the next book as a retrospective in three years!"
--Adam Broadway, Founder/CEO, Near Me
"When I helped start Thumbtack many years ago, I never imagined that we were on the cutting edge of an economic movement far larger than we knew. Barbara Gray describes this movement towards economic abundance in great detail, with stories and case studies that will resonate with any reader."
--Sander Daniels, Co-Founder, Thumbtack
"Ubernomics is a master class on the real economy for would-be disrupters and industry incumbents alike."
--Mark Gilbreath, CEO/Founder/Skipper, LiquidSpace
"Barbara's intense interest and proven intuition into the new breed of businesses who are activating the newfound reality of abundant supply/demand makes Ubernomics incredibly convincing, fun and challenging all in one."
--Cameron Doody, Co-Founder, Bellhops
