Best-selling author and adviser to businesses and governments around the world, Don Tapscott explains in clear language how companies can create wealth in the digital economy. His latest book, Growing Up Digital: The Rise of the Net Generation, chronicles the rise of the Net Generation, which is employing digital technology to change the way individuals and society interact. Released in October 1997, the book went into its 4th printing in less than three weeks.

Author of five widely read books on the application of technology in business, The Digital Economy: Promise and Peril in the Age of Networked Intelligence (1996) appeared on a number of best-seller lists, including The New York Times business book list. It had a run of seven months on the Business Week best-seller list. Business Week also named The Digital Economy as a top-selling business book for 1996. It has been translated into seven languages.

Tapscott is also co-author of Paradigm Shift: The New Promise of Information Technology (1992). Now in its eleventh printing, it has been translated into seven languages. He also co-authored, with Ann Cavoukian, Who Knows: Safeguarding Your Privacy in a Networked World (1995).

scott is Chairman of the Alliance for Converging Technologies, a think tank currently conducting a multimillion-dollar investigation into the impact of the information highway and the new media on business, government and society. The program is funded by some of the world’s largest suppliers and users of emerging technologies.

President of New Paradigm Learning Corporation, Tapscott is described by Vice President Al Gore as one of the world’s leading cyber-gurus and by the influential Washington Technology Report as one of the most influential media authorities since Marshall McLuhan. He is an internationally sought after consultant, speaker and authority on information technology in business and consults to the world’s largest corporations. His clients include the top executives of many Fortune 100 companies and other leading enterprises around the world. In Canada in 1992, he chaired the first information highway advisory council ever established -- setting a model emulated by many countries.

Tapscott is co-editor of the soon to be published Blueprint to the Digital Economy, an anthology containing chapters written by a cross section of leaders of the digital revolution, including Vinton Cerf (MCI and founder of the Internet), John Seely Brown (Xerox PARC), and James Moore (author of The Death of Competition).
