As the U.S. infrastructure crisis reaches a fever pitch in news coverage, public opinion and the next election cycle, Harvard’s Rosabeth Moss Kanter’s new book Move: Putting America’s Infrastructure Back in the Lead is increasingly important – and quickly moving up the best-seller lists.

View her recent interview with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” at and see the following comments and reviews about Move:

“What unites us should be stronger than what divides us, and our shared reliance on infrastructure – for access to jobs, education, clean air, and healthy communities – makes it a top national priority. In Move Rosabeth Moss Kanter offers impressive analysis, insightful stories, and a compelling road map for a new way forward.”
– President Bill Clinton

“What a wonderful book! With bold and imaginative thinking, Move shows how we can combine technological innovation with dedicated leadership to make transportation infrastructure an engine for growth and a spark to reignite America’s optimism.”
Walter Isaacson, best-selling author of “The Innovators” and “Steve Jobs”

“Delivering world-class infrastructure is essential for any country to be competitive and create jobs. Move takes a fresh view on this issue and identifies solutions that build on key American strengths in technological innovation and entrepreneurial vision.”
– Jeffrey R. Immelt, chairman and CEO, GE

“Rosabeth Kanter’s Move makes a persuasive case for the central importance of America’s infrastructure to our country’s future. In particular, she shows how smarter transportation systems – built on Big Data, cloud, mobile, and social technologies – can make our communities less congested and more livable. This is an important book, with lessons for business, government, and all of civil society.”
Virginia Rometty, chairman and CEO, IBM

“America’s crumbling infrastructure is one of our most important – and yet overlooked – challenges. With ‘Move,’ Rosabeth Kanter puts a human face on the data. From our environment and economy to our neighborhoods and daily commutes, Kanter shows not only the urgent need to address this critical issue but, more importantly, how to do it, in this engaging and inspiring work.”
Arianna Huffington, president and editor in chief, AOL Huffington Post Media Group

“Savvy, persuasive, and enjoyable to read, Move is a sweeping, fact-filled look at how reimagining infrastructure and embracing disruptive technologies and new business models could improve daily life, open economic opportunities, and ease burdens on families. Everyone who cares about more livable cities and more efficient commutes should grab this eye-opening book.”
