Review:

"[T]he book consists of a vivid presentation of what a network industry is [and is] the best single source for anyone wanting to get acquainted with the state of the art in this field today." Luca Lambertini, University of Bologna, Southern Economic Journal

"At last: a definitive textbook on the economic theory of high technology! Up until now the literature on network economics has only been available in advanced journals. Oz Shy has managed to package it beautifully so that it is accessible to advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students." Hal Varian, University of California, Berkeley

"Oz Shy offers us in his latest book a very elegant, neat, and simple presentation of what economists have accomplished in the field of network goods. The array of topics covered is impressive: it ranges for the hardware and software industries to bank- and money-related issues. This is a major book edvoted to a major topic. It should be read those students, scholars or decision/policy makers who want to understand something about this new (although sometimes quite old) domain of human activity and academic research." Jacques Thisse, CORE, Belgium

"This valuable book about critical area of growing economic importance, by an author who himself has made significant contributions to the subject, fills a real gap in the market. It should be useful for both advanced undergraduate and graduate classes." Paul Klemperer, Nuffield College, Oxford University

"Shy has succeeded in simplifying the arguments that economists have been feverishly debating in academic journals in the fields of network industries from telephony to the Internet...of considerable interest to researchers, industry professionals regulators and policymakers seeking a clear and concise explanation of the economics of high technology network industries as well as anyone interested in the Internet browser wars, implications of electronic libraries and publishing or the activities of omnipresent media communications moguls such as Bill Gates or Rupert Murdoch."
