Reviews For Fast Company Magazine

Fast Journalism

Fast Company is a magazine that focuses on recent trends in business and technology from a very socially-conscious point of view. The design and format of the magazine are very appealing, and before I subscribed to it I would regularly browse it at "Borders" or "Barnes and Noble." Since I am a gadget freak, the section on the latest products and tools was always one of my favorites. The magazine tends to focus a lot on the persons behind the headlines, regularly profiling many of the industrial movers and shakers. Oftentimes, however, persons that they choose to profile are of dubious distinction at best, and the articles about them have a very strong puff-piece feel to them. On top of that, the companies seem to be eager to ascertain their socially-conscious bona fides by appearing in a positive light in this magazine, so there is also a strong sense of articles coming across as if written in conjunction with corporate PR machines. Nevertheless, the quality of writing for the most part is pretty high, and there are many interesting and stimulating stories that are worthwhile reads.

one of the few innnovative mags left

along with WIRED, i feel that Fast Company is one the few maverick publications left in this merger and recession world. Even if you don't agree with the articles or predictions, at least every one is well-thought out and INTERESTING.

Great mag!

This magazine is a well written collection of interesting stories about doing business in today's business climate. Things HAVE changed...

A very good information source

Fast Company is one of the best business magazines. Now that Business 2.0 is out-of-the-market, since a corporate decission by Time-Warner, Fast Company is probably the best source for creative, up-to-date business trends and insight, specially if you own or work for a micro-small business. Read it, you won't regret it.

Good blend of business, tech

Good business stories with a tech focus. Not as good as Wired but still a quality pub.

Very Insightful Business Magazine

I had heard of Fast Company before when an executive said it was a magazine he really enjoyed. I usually find most popular business magazines dull and poorly written. This is an exception. Articles are entertaining and often provide a unique perspective or idea. As someone who works for a large company that is often times "change-resistant," Fast Company is a breath of fresh air. It provides many examples of how your company -- small or large -- can be poised to take advantage of new technology, understand the latest in consumer trends, and succeed in this economy. It should be required reading for any executive, manager, or employee that is interested in how companies evolve and change.

Interesting, could use some balance

I like the mag, but like Jon Stewart, I just wish it could be less liberal.

Not so fast...

Fast Company lands with a thud in my mailbox every two months, jamming it with its 300-some pages. I was an early-reader of this magazine, and very impressed when it first came out. Since that time, it's lost its luster for me. I still find some useful information, but often the attitude and sheer volume of information gets in the way.

For my money, the magazine Business 2.0 does what Fast Company promised, and does it better, offering practical, real-life help in this booming new economy. I get good news from both of them, but lately, Business 2.0 leaves me inspired, Fast Company just leaves me exhausted.

When it comes to "leading edge" business magazines, pick up a Fast Company from the newsstand once in a while, but subscribe to something else. It's almost like a business fashion magazine -- you feel you have to get it to stay on top of things, but you don't necessarily have to read it.


Attractive to a Limited Audience

"Fast Company" provides the reader with anecdotal stories of entrepreneurs in high tech industries. I found the stories to be of some interest, but not directly helpful to someone outside of industries involving cutting edge electronic technologies. I think that it would be attractive to a limited audience, but not to the general reader.
