"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"" "
