What people are saying about Read Write Own
I sent out advance copies of my book Read Write Own a few months ago, and was excited by the positive feedback. I’ll be sharing more soon — the book comes out next week — but for now, here are some early blurbs that will appear on the book:
“Chris Dixon has always been someone who sees the future with clarity and practicality. He does this once again in Read Write Own, making the case for blockchain technology as the fundamental building block of the future and clearly laying out where the internet is going.”—John Donahoe, CEO, Nike
“Chris Dixon’s Read Write Own is a must for anyone who wants to better understand the real potential of blockchains and web3 to drive even greater innovation, inspire more imaginative thinking, and ultimately unlock new growth opportunities in the future.”—Bob Iger, CEO, Disney
“This book changed my mind. It’s a clear manifesto for redeeming the internet, and making it the democratic platform we all want. It’s the best positive case for crypto I’ve seen.”—Kevin Kelly, founding editor Wired; bestselling author of The Inevitable
“Read this book to understand a compelling vision of where the internet should go and how to get there.”—Sam Altman, CEO, OpenAI
“Chris takes on the challenge and succeeds at explaining just how crypto technology is what’s important to our technological future and how we all can benefit, much like we have from the internet. I would encourage all regulators and crypto nay-sayers around the world to read this book.”—Marc Cuban, Shark Tank; Dallas Mavericks
“Whether you’re already interested in crypto or just curious about blockchains, web3, and the future of the internet—this is THE definitive book about the industry and beyond.”—Emilie Choi, President and Chief Operating Officer, Coinbase

"I love this book: the history, the insights, the optimism. Dixon does a brilliant job of explaining where the internet went wrong, but does an even better job explaining how to make things right. Every page has important arguments about how blockchains can make technology more democratic, just, and trustworthy." —Nicholas Thompson, CEO, The Atlantic; former editor-in-chief of Wired, former editor Newyorker.com
"This is a pivotal moment for the internet. Chris Dixon's fascinating book offers a refreshing and radical new take at a time when we need fresh thinking more than ever."—Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder & CEO, Inflection; co-founder, DeepMind; author of New York Times bestseller The Coming Wave: Technology, Power, and the 21st Century's Greatest Dilemma
I am grateful to all the people who took the time to share their thoughts about Read Write Own.
I’ve added some early reviews to my book site as well, and will be adding more there as they come in: readwrite.own.
