Hereís how it works: you read a book, you recommend it to a friend. That friend tells another friend. And another... until the book becomes this yearís word-of-mouth sensation.
This is the first to analyze the power of the 'pass-it-oní phenomenon, introducing us to the architects of the mightily efficient, money-spinning model known as the Viral Loop - the secret behind some of the most successful businesses in recent history.
Outfits such as Google, eBay, Flickr and Facebook all employ the model at their core; all have seen their stock valuations skyrocket within years of forming. The genius lies in the modelís reliance on replication: whatís the point of using Facebook if none of your friends can see your profile, or using Flickr if you canít share your photos?

Find out why the Loop will catch us all up, sooner rather than later...
