About the book/Order

When Funky Business first appeared in 2000, it was a call to arms, a wake-up call for anesthetised corporate senses. The world surrendered. To date, Funky Business has been published in 33 languages making it one of the most sold business books ever. Now comes a completely updated and reinvigorated classic edition of the original bestseller: Funky Business Forever. Kjell A Nordström and Jonas Ridderstråle have gone back to the original and intellectually remastered it. Funky Business Forever contains a myriad of new examples gathered by Kjell and Jonas in their worldwide foraging for the true meaning of funk.

About the book/Order

In the long-awaited follow-up to the international best-seller Funky Business, Jonas Ridderstråle and Kjell A Nordström launch a new manifesto for how to make it inthe world of Karaoke Capitalism.

The karaoke economy is dominated by individuals with endless choice. The trouble for business is that the karaoke club is also home to institutionalized. Copy-cats abound. Only imagination and innovation place societies, organizations and individuals center-stage.

Karaoke Capitalism is a call to arms. Kjell and Jonas are rebels with a cause. With their unorthodox combination
of academic rigor, forceful logic and funky free-thinking they once again re-write the rules for evolutionaries.
This is a true work-out for the wits. Free your mind! The book teaches us how to successfully compete on competencies, create capitalism with character, and
how to have a great life while also making a living. It is required reading for all those wanting to be a first-rate version of themselves rather than a second-rate version of someone else.


"If you loved Funky Business as much as I did, you´ll love Karaoke Capitalism. Weird? Most certainly. Different? Most definitely. But, if you want to re-imagine your organization and your career it´s a thought-provoking place to start."

Tom Peters, management guru and author of "Re-imagine" and many other fine management books.
