Our review goes deep into this high-tech marketing blueprint, taking you from understanding what the chasm is in the context of the tech adoption lifecycle, picking a niche to focus your efforts on to ford this gap, to positioning yourself as the market leader within this niche. We go through each chapter of the book in detail, on a progressive path of marketing knowledge, theory and application, to forever leave the chasm behind.
