Crossing the Chasm: Marketing and Selling High-Tech Products to Mainstream Customers by Geoffrey A. Moore

This fabulous little book has had an enormous impact on the high tech industry and is required reading in business school marketing classes all across the country. You see, Geoff Moore's chasm theory provides a fresh look at the technology adoption life cycle and its implications for marketers. The book explains how tech products may initially sell well to "Innovators" and Early Adopters," but then fail to penetrate the mass market.

Geoff draws on examples of successful chasm crossings by Apple, Tandem, Oracle, Sun, and others. If you are serious about high tech marketing, this wonderfully written, accessible book makes must reading. Trust me.
