"One basic economic rule, as Mr. Rifkin points out, has not changed since Roman times: caveat emptor. In the brave new wired world, it will be ever more difficult for the buyer to beware of technology speeding forward in nanoseconds, controlled by global giants."
— The New York Times
"Jeremy Rifkin identifies several of the most powerful 'beneath the surface' change-forces impacting business, society, and even individual identity -- especially those forces unleashed by the power of the Internet and e-commerce. He raises provocative questions about a not-too-distant future when traditional relationships among people, property, and knowledge are radically altered, all ruled by a very different commercial worldview. Worthwhile reading for anyone interested in seeing where we're all going and what new opportunities may be captured by the nimble."
— Professor Thomas Gerrity, Director, Wharton e-Commerce Forum
"How do we get a better grip on ourselves, the changing nature of commerce, and the culture we will all inhabit in cyberspace? We start by reading Jeremy Rifkin's The Age of Access."
— Norman Lear
"Jeremy Rifkin has the rare ability to look over the horizon and see the future that's bearing down on us. His vision of corporate capitalism dematerializing into webs of access and networks of 'virtual' power is startling and compelling -- another warning bell for democracy and human society, as prescient and alarming as Rifkin's previous books."
— William Greider, author of One World, Ready or Not: The Manic Logic of Global Capitalism
"Page after page bristles with cogent analysis, factually buttressed and lucidly delineated."
— The Seattle Times
