"A wake up call for software buyers and sellers. The knowledge gap between business and IT must be closed for organizations to recognize the real business benefits of software solutions. Keller takes a practical 'back to basics' approach to this important issue."

"Although not its stated purpose, in reading Technology Paradise Lost, one sometimes gets the impression that the excesses of the bubble are inherent to the technology itself, and the value of the technology is thus called into question. Given the extremes of the era in which Keller participated, however, his cynicism seems entirely apropos."
-- Kevin Parker, Editor, MSI magazine

"One of the best business-oriented information management books I've read."
-- David F. Carr, Senior Technology Analyst, Baseline
