    Shocked to see high ratings here. This book came to me with 80% discount from Amazon. It should be 99%. It is a compilation of interviews with innovators; Short, and mediocre interviews from little known people. Unbalanced, and pitiful research and terrible interview questions. Talks about Flat world navigators with a little to no emphasis of Flat world economies, and success stories of BRICS; Filled with childish keywords, word clouds, hard to remember jargons. Sorry!! But highly disappointing. Shocked to see high ratings here. This book came to me with 80% discount from Amazon. It should be 99%.

    Book that tells the new developments in Economy in the era of Web 2.0. The author begins by defining the difference between the economy and the GDE, ie the Global Digital Economy, that unlike the first one is agile, borderless and collaborative, and then he illustrates it across the different fields, such as media and medicine for example, interviewing the main protagonists.

L'autore inizia con il definire la differenza tra l'economia e la GDE, cioé la Global Digital Economy che a differenza della prima é agile, senza confini e collaborativa, dopo di che la illustra all'interno dei vari campi, come i media e la medicina per esempio, intervistandone i principali protagonisti.

    The original writing in the book is quite poor. The author has a tendency to use far too many serial comma lists that instead of making a point simply appear to be the result of attempting to make a statement by listing all of the variations on a thought. There is also a heavy dose of consulting-speak acronyms (does anyone use the terms "Global Digital Economy, or GDE, or terms like the "me-conomy" or "me-dia" or "me-health" or call themself a "Flat World Navigator") and plenty of opinionated vi The original writing in the book is quite poor.

The only positive is that a few of the interviews provide some interesting views from people doing interesting and innovative things. I'd suggest skipping the introductory and final thoughts in each chapter and just flip through to find the interviews that are of most interest.

    I received this book as part of the GoodReads First Reads program from the publisher. Over all a very interesting book. I enjoyed reading all the interviews, it was great to get so many personal views on what it takes to be an innovator/entrepreneur. Personal experience speaks volumes more than just your average self-help/how-to business book. The only downside was also connected to this; so many points of view and so much information barreling at you makes for slow going at points.

The only downside was also connected to this; so many points of view and so much information barreling at you makes for slow going at points. It's not that anyone was particularly uninteresting, more that it got to be information overload eventually. Definitely good if you are interested in how people have gotten to the tops of their fields. And useful as a little pep talk if you yourself are stuck ("if they can do it, why can't I?")

    A collection of eclectic interviews that focus on ideas that could change the planet for the better. Skims the surface as each of the topics is quite deep. Ok read.
