One of the most successful businesspeople in the United States, a pioneer who made the Internet a part of everyday life and oversaw the biggest merger in business history, shows how anyone can succeed in a world where technology is changing quickly.
In 1985, Steve Case helped start America Online (AOL), which was the start of his career. At the time, only 3% of Americans were on the Internet. It took AOL ten years to become popular, and there were many near-death experiences and back-to-the-wall turn along the way. In the 1990s, AOL was the most successful company. At its peak, more than half of all consumer Internet traffic in the United States went through the service. After getting AOL and Time Warner to join forces and become one company, Case was in charge of the world’s most extensive media and communications empire.
The title of Case’s book, The Third Wave, comes from the futurist Alvin Toffler, whose work influenced him as a young man. In the book, Case takes us behind the scenes of some of the most important and exciting business decisions of our time. He also shares enlightening insights from his decades of work as an entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, and advocate for sensible bipartisan policies.
Case says that we are now in the “Third Wave” of the Internet, which is a new way of thinking. During the first Wave, AOL and other companies built the infrastructure that allowed people to connect to the Internet. In the second Wave, companies like Google and Facebook built on top of the Internet to make search and social networking tools. At the same time, apps like Snapchat and Instagram took advantage of the smartphone revolution. Case says that we are now in the Third Wave, a time when entrepreneurs will make significant changes in big “real world” sectors like health, education, transportation, energy, and food, which will change how we live our daily lives. But to do well in the Third Wave, you’ll need different skills, and Case shows you how to get there.
The Third Wave is a mix of a memoir, a political statement, and a guide for what to do in the future. Case explains with passion and clarity how new technology companies (of which, he says, a growing number will not be based in Silicon Valley) will have to rethink their relationships with customers, competitors, and governments. He also advises on how entrepreneurs can make sound business decisions and strategies and how we can all make sense of this changing digital age.
