Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

For everyone feeling trampled by the speed of life and business, author Vince Poscente reveals how to get ahead of the rush once and for all in The Age of Speed. Unraveling the notion that in today's world we need to slow down, Poscente illustrates why harnessing the power of speed is the ultimate solution for those seeking less stress, less busyness, and more balance.

Unraveling the notion that in today’s world we need to slow down, Poscente illustrates why harnessing the power of speed is the ultimate solution for those seeking less stress, less busyness, and more balance. The Age of Speed shows this and other groundbreaking revelations at work with case studies drawn from renegade companies such as Snapple, Netflix, Samsung, and Geico. And in the tradition of Freakonomics and The Tipping Point, a storyteller’s voice enlivens its provocative research and counterintuitive insights.


"The Age of Speed is your bible to surf the speed tsunami that's overtaking business and life."
—Scott Cook, Chairman and Co-Founder, Intuit

"A must-read for anyone caught in the blur between life and work where communication is instant, timelines are tightening, and results are expected immediately."
—Barbara Beck, President, Manpower, Inc., Europe, Middle East, and Africa

"Seek out speed and celebrate it as your most powerful tool in the global race for better business, a better life, and a better world."
—Michael Lister, Chairman and CEO, Jackson Hewitt, Inc.

"In a very fun, engaging, and information style, Vince Poscente illuminates how to navigate our new world of more, faster, now. His counterintuitive notion of embracing speed rather than coping with it will change the way people live and work."
—Stephen M.R. Covey, Author, The Speed Of Trust
