Stefan Pollack has identified the sociological and technological causes of what I believe to be the most dramatic disruption of the relationship between companies and their customers that most CEOs have ever seen. He understands the challenges facing marketers who need to understand that their brands are no longer defined by what they tell people, but by what people say about them—online and off. And he offers essential advice for those who need to understand and make themselves relevant to a new generation of consumers.

Marketing has changed more in the past 3 years than in the prior 25. Yes, due to technology. But more so, because the information habits and buying preferences of the world’s youth have entirely shifted. Disrupted shows you how iGen behaves differently than the rest of us, and how business must retool in response. Recommended.

Today’s youth are the most social generation in history. Taking their cues from each other, business as usual for brands won’t work with them. Disrupted is a must read diagnosis of what makes this generation tick. Insightful and cogently argued, it lays out a powerful blueprint for how to connect with iGen, the generation that is disrupting the marketplace today and will shape it tomorrow.
