How to achieve your goals and permanently alter the status quo through the art of self-disruption.
In Disrupt Yourself, innovator and digital media expert Jay Samit reveals how to achieve your goals and permanently alter the status quo through the art of self-disruption. In today's ever-changing and often-volatile business landscape, adaptability and creativity are more crucial than ever. Samit describes how specific strategies that help companies flourish - challenging assumptions, pinpointing one's unique value, and identifying weaknesses in the structure of current industries - can be applied at an individual level.
Incorporating stories from his own experience and anecdotes from other innovators and disruptive businesses - including Richard Branson, Steve Jobs, YouTube, ooVoo and many more - Samit shows how personal transformation can reap entrepreneurial and professional rewards.
Disrupt Yourself offers clear and empowering advice for anyone looking to break through a creative barrier; anyone with a big idea but no idea how to apply it; and anyone worried about being made irrelevant in an era of technological transformation.
This engaging, perspective-shifting book demystifies the mechanics of disruption for individuals and businesses alike.

It expanded my thinking on the possibilities in life and business.
Actually stories behind successful businesses to back up theory on disruptions
Insightful and inspiring. The info has been a game changer for my businesses.
I'm pretty sure this is my first book review, even though I've got hundreds of books in my library and close to a hundred Kindle & audible books.
I bought this thinking that it's a personal development book, which it's not. It's a business book about finding new markets/products in modern business. This is NOT a self help book about changing your thinking.
"Great inspiring read"
A must read for anyone who is considering starting a diseuptive business - or any startup actually -. This book is filled with examples from many fields.
The author identifies key concepts and patterns in each industry and in the startups that diseupted those fields.
It gave me a great motivation boost and a set of good thoughts and ideas to hold on to and sync into my mind.
There's a bit of repetition about the companies the author worked for.
"unoriginal, unconnected collection of stories."
Initially I was highly excited about learning new ways to reinvent and disrupt my own thinking process. The book does not offer any original ideas in this regard other than set goals, set a deadline, don't think negative.... etc.
Not very helpful to someone who has read most of the self-development literature gems out there. I only made it to the 6th chapter and cannot continue any longer.
I really enjoyed this book, the author had some great historical lessons and anecdotes that he shares as well as some practical advice.
"Best book ever"
Really good. Very interesting and relevant examples. No fillers. No bragging. Very useful. Will listen again
"Outstanding...going to listen again ASAP"
Well worth listening to, sharing and then acting on. All chapters excellent, interesting and exciting...the last chapter quite incredible if you meditate on all that has gone before.
"Intriguing story about creating opportunities"
Quite well up in the grand scheme of things. A very good listen, interspersed with examples by author of his successes, to add credibility to his advice. Always easy to listen to, and very informative.
There were a few - and all were exceptionally good points.
No in such a way but it has made me think more deeply about ways to tackle challenges and change our mindset.
Just a very good listen.
"A great Insight into Human innovation"
This book breaks down in simple steps how World renowned businesses like Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Twitter and Facebook Came into prominence and How they continue to stay relevant. DISRUPT Yourself before someone DISRUPTS You.
"Excellent essential for anyone leading a business"
Excellent essential for anyone leading a business to help know when to pivot a good idea to a different market or how to fund a great idea you can get no budget for.
Talked a lot about businesses doing different things that made big industry changes, and the ones that didn't who were disrupted and lost out, for example Sony not creating E Reader books. Probably interesting for some but not for me. Bit samey to be honest. Nothing that inspired me to exact huge changes in my own life. This book did not Disrupt my way of thinking. (See what I did there? Why on earth am I not a writer? Note to self: Listen to David Quantic's 'How to Write Everything' again.)
"long but inspiring"
too many examples of past stories but still good to hear it from a baller
"Very motivational and good food for thought."
If you have passion, but are lacking motivation, give yourself a kickstart with Disrupt yourself.
"The Child in One"
The Child in one is the most important thing in our Lives.
Rediscover the child in you and forge ahead with no inhibitions and the world shall be a better place.
"must read for any businessman / woman."
great mix of theory with real life examples. lacks a bit of social / family talk
