"A great read - lots of fun, very engaging, full of new facts and smart insights." --Daniel Gilbert, bestselling author of "Stumbling on Happiness; "Professor of Psychology, Harvard University ""Breakpoint" is an engaging comparison of the rise and fall of nature's networks and the lessons we all need to be learning from them as we become increasingly dependent on the internet."--Jon Stewart, host of BBC's Science in Action, and columnist at BBC Future "Brain scientist Jeff Stibel uses a wide ranging set of fascinating examples to answer why the web will implode and search will be obsolete drawing on parallels of the architecture of our brains. As an entrepreneur providing Brain Machine Interfaces, he draws on the massive architectural structure of cutter ants, how the Easter Island thriving community collapsed through overconsumption, and why Marissa Mayer joined startup Google and most recently became CEO at declining Yahoo." --Gordon Bell, Researcher Emeritus, Microsoft "Stibel's keen insight into biological networks, including our brain's neural networks, provides the perfect analog for the emerging technological networks. Breakpoints have long been the difference between success and extinction in biology, and Stibel has proved that the same is true in the digital world. "Breakpoint"is an engaging book and a must read." --Ashish Soni, Founding Director of the Innovation Institute, University of Southern California "Jeff Stibel has written an easy-to-read and in-depth analysis of how the internet compares to the human brain in calculation, communication, prediction capabilities and pattern recognition. What makes his book so fascinating is the simple clarity he brings to an extraordinarily complex and fast-changing subject. "Breakpoint" is original, exciting, and brilliantly informative." --Bill Draper, founder of Sutter Hill Venture and author of "The Startup Game"" "

*A full executive summary of this book will be available at newbooksinbrief dot com, on or before Tuesday, August 6, 2013.

This is not a book about the end of the internet, as the controversial title may seem to suggest. Rather, it’s a book about networks (meaning a group of interconnected people or things) and how networks evolve; and its main focus is on internet-related networks and the internet itself (which is one enormous network). The author, Jeff Stibel, argues that there are certain natural laws that govern the unfolding of networks, and that understanding these laws can help us understand how the internet (and other internet-related networks) are likely to evolve over time, and also how we should approach these networks in order to get the most out of them (including make money off of them).

When it comes to the evolution of a network, Stibel argues that there are three main stages here: 1) Growth; 2) Breakpoint and 3) Equilibrium. In the growth phase, the network grows in size, usually at a very quick (often exponential) pace. This is a precarious time for networks, for if they do not grow fast enough and large enough they will simply wither away and die (the vast majority of networks do in fact die at this stage).

Though a network must grow very quickly in the growth phase just to survive, this initial rate of growth is not something that can be sustained indefinitely. For all networks have a natural carrying capacity that limits how large they can be. This carrying capacity is defined by two factors: energy and organizational complexity.

Fascinating, brilliantly-observed and instantly hooks the reader 23. Juli 2013
Von James Beswick - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Breakpoint is one of those rare popular science books that's able to present a complex and intangible subject in a light that's fascinating, intriguing and completely engrosses the reader. I was given an evaluation copy and couldn't put it down - over the course of a two day period, I managed to use every spare moment to read more to the point where I was disappointed when it was finished. If you enjoy Steven Pinker, Matt Ridley or Mary Roach, author Jeff Stibel is in the same class in terms of making theoretical scientific concepts exciting, and illuminating hidden connections between seemingly disparate topics. Breakpoint provided my conversation pieces for a solid week after reading - after all, who doesn't want to discuss ants, cannibals, sea squirts and the difficulties of learning a second language as an adult?

The author is highly effective at presenting his thesis slowly and deliberately and leading the reader to the same conclusions which seem almost incredulous from the front cover. Before starting, I would have thought that predictions of the demise of Google Search and Facebook were completely insane, whereas now I see them as inevitable. The overarching observations about the way biological and man-made networks function are absolutely astonishing and though they are obvious once you see them, they clearly dictate the performance and behavior of such networks we use every day. The book explains the natural limits that prevent an extra lane on the highway from fixing traffic problems as well as the unseen but significant overhead in retaining excess capacity after growth (the Breakpoint of the title). Essentially, Stibel has taken a fairly unexceptional curve that he's found occurs repeatedly in his various lines of research and used it as both a flashlight and crystal ball on the technological systems we use every day.

Breakpoint benefits from a very fluid writing style comparable to many of the best magazine pieces with each chapter presented as a self-contained part of the puzzle. It's fastidiously researched, cleverly thought-out and paints a realistic vision of the future of the Internet based upon what has been observed in the brain. I've rarely read a popular science book that has held my attention so effectively and it's irreversibly changed the way I look at many things in life, from the humble ant to the omnipresent Google. If you have any interest in science or the Internet, Breakpoint is undoubtedly one of the best reads of the last few years and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Do not judge this book by it's cover! 22. September 2013
Von Eddie Merkel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed reading this book, but I have to say that the title was somewhat misleading. In reality this book was more about how the brain works and how the future of the internet and computer technology might emulate the brains methods than it was about a coming collapse of the internet and search. I would have probably prefered it either bear out the promise of the title, or have a different title that aligned with the content of the book.
That said I did enjoy it. I think it is a worthwhile expenditure of your time as long as you don't expect it to deliver on what the title promises.

Technology + Business + Science = Awesome 23. Juli 2013
Von Brandon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A really cool book by a really impressive entrepreneur! The author Jeff Stibel takes us through the intersection of technology, business and science to reveal how patterns in biology and brain science apply to real world challenges like how to grow a business and how to identify break points in networks. Really fascinating stuff, an easy, addictive read, and it actually applies to challenges many business owners face in their careers. Great stuff! Highly recommended.

Solidly facinating 3. März 2014
Von A.L.Hewson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Breakpoint is one of the most well-researched and thought-provoking books published recently, in my opinion. The concepts about networks are truly fascinating and present some interesting potential applications to organizations such as Facebook, the internet, etc. Even if you don't agree with every assertion--and I admit that I did not-- you'll be glad that you challenged your thinking.

Interesting--Recommend for College Students 3. März 2014
Von Michael Long - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As one of the other reviewers said, this book is not exactly what I expected when I first read the cover. It was actually better than expected. I would have never made the connection between the brain, an ant colony, and the web-- but it's quite a fascinating concept. Good book for college students who are studying sociology, psychology, anthropology, computers, engineering, etc.
