Globetechnology.com, June 3, 2002 - Andrew Allentuck

Since the superb first edition of this book came out in 2000, e-business has metamorphosed into something ubiquitous, often wireless, and too often profitless. Daniel Amor, chief technologist for e-commerce for Hewlett-Packard in Germany, has added 228 pages to the first edition and brought the book up to date.

Among the best additions to the first edition is an analysis of dot.com deaths. His take on the phenomenon that has been waggishly called the "dot con" phenomenon is not that virtual business was insufficiently attractive to potential customers, but that buyers became more discerning and cut back capital injections to dud companies like fashion merchandiser Boo.com.

Hubris drove fashion merchandiser Boo.com to its death, Mr. Amor says. It wasted $400,000 (US) a week on ads and perks and had a website so complex that it jammed customers' computers. In the end, Boo.com blew away about $1 billion (US), Mr. Amor relates. While Boo.com lived, it thrived on hype and the sheer brio of staffers who jetted around the world first class blowing wads of cash without knowing why.

Brilliance and clarity made the first edition a world wide best seller in the e-commerce market. The second edition is even better, even more current, and even more vital to e-commerce managers and technologists who want to get perspective and tools for their industry. Better than this, few e-commerce texts get. For information and for a wonderfully clear and direct style, The E-Business Revolution sets a standard that others can only try to emulate.

Very Good Book, January 9, 2003 - Wekesa from Tokushima

This book is good.

I wanted a book to help me prepare for CompTIA's e-Biz+ examination, and I think my search is over. This book explains things so well and it gives you a complete picture. So far, I find it fun to read. It has to be the book.

The money will have been well spent.

At first glance this book did not look to promising, lets face it the subject of e-business does not in general get anyone excited.

Fortunately I started to read the book and found I could not put it down until I had finished it. The final score of editors choice just about says it all.

This is a must have book for anyone that has a web site and hopes to succeed in the world of e-business. When I say anyone , I mean web sites run by just one guy, right up to those big corporate sites, you do really need to absorb the contents of this book and put some of what it contains to use.

espen.com, 2003 - Espen Andersen

A very complete "technology book", though there is little reason to feel intimidated.  Good explanations of all aspects of life online, practically oriented and surprisingly up-to-date.  And, for an added bonus, written by a European....

One of the best books about e-business, March 11, 2002 - Industrial News Net from Sidney, Australia

The E-Business (R)Evolution provides a very detailed overview on the most important topics related to e-business. It provides not only insight into the technologies and businesses, but proves the different business models by providing some very good examples from around the world. While the hype is gone, e-business is still here and there is more than one reason for it. If you need to understand better what the next steps should be, in your e-business adventure, get this book and you will learn how to be successful!

Very complete manual for the entrepreneur!, February 9, 2002 - Ginger Harold from Leeds, United Kingdom

A very nice book about e-business that even includes some very funny notes, such as: "In May 2000, the producers of the television show Big Brother tried to admonish anyone who tried to set up an unofficial fan page. In this case it is questionable if intellectual property is involved since the whole concept was without content." I like most the sections about legal problems (which is free on the author's web page) and the chapter about new technologies.

Second Edition - a great update!, January 15, 2002 - Janice Hollwarth from Boston, MA USA

Daniel Amor has revised his book after two years almost completely and adapted it to the changes that occured within these two years. He puts now even more emphasis on ROI and business cases and provides some insight how the dot.coms crashed. Already in 1999 he presented the right strategy, but it seemed that no very many dot.coms really listened. Although dot.coms may be dead, the Internet is still here and alive and kicking and therefore his book presents the key concepts for building and operating e-business web-sites today. The book also improved largely on the language part and is now even more fun to read. I have been using the book for teaching and will introduce now the second edition to my classes.
