I haven't read "The Accidental Billionaires" yet, so I'm not sure if the book cover is SUPPOSED to draw an association to Stephen King's "Everything's Eventual" or if it's simply a ripoff of that cover. The same cover designer perhaps? I doubt any designer worth his salt would reuse a design like this. Anyone know something about this? I'm just curious.

Ahh... I think I answered my own question. It had been a while since I read King's "Everything's Eventual" which is a collection of short stories. I forgot that the story that shares the book title is about a naÔve young high school drop-out with a certain talent but no clear ambition, who discovers his dream job is a nightmare. So I guess the author is indeed making an association here. It'll probably be mentioned in the book itself.
