Atomic the authors' revolutionary theory is put to the test. Looking across all sectors of business, including retail banking, financial services, telecommunications, IT and consultancy, carbon-based corporations (oil and gas companies), and consumer products companies, Camrass and Farncombe discover some real eye-openers, including how truly more efficient these industries become by a change in corporate structure.
The implications for individuals are equally profound and far-reaching. It might take a decade, but it will happen, and nothing will be the same again. Welcome to the Atomic Corporation.
