Published in fifteen languages and named one of the 100 best business books of all time by 800ceoread, in 2011, The Experience Economy came out for the first time in paperback as an updated edition with new ideas, new frameworks, and many, many new exemplars.

Gilmore, and in 1993 published his first book, the award-winning Mass Customization: The New Frontier in Business Competition. Pine consults with numerous companies around the world, helping them embrace the ideas and frameworks he writes about, in order to develop concepts for creating more economic value, and see those concepts become reality. In his speaking and teaching activities, he has addressed the World Economic Forum, the original TED conference, and the Consumer Electronics Show. Today he is a lecturer in Columbia University’s Technology Management program in the School of Professional Studies. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
