What a tour de force,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky: How the Top 1% of Entrepreneurs Profit from Global Chaos (Hardcover)
I have never met Sarah Lacy as of writing this and am posting this review right before the book's official launch. I grew up in developing countries, have lived through rawness, and work in technology in Silicon Valley -- this book really hit home. Lacy has really done her research and written a compelling and current analysis of our world. I thought the focus on China, India, Brazil, Indonesia and Rwanda as top emerging economies, and what that means for the US, was very apt. The personal stories of people who overcame overwhelming odds to build and rebuild their societies, especially the opening chapter on a Brazilian entrepreneur, were deeply moving.
I felt inspired and bought two more copies to gift to others.

In an 2011.03.07 interview with Lisa Murphy on Bloomberg TV, Sarah Lacy mentioned the title of her book "Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky" described the emerging markets entrepreneurs she interviewed for the book, as well as herself, so obviously has a very, very high opinion of herself.
That explains her horrible Mark Zuckerberg public interview where she was almost booed off the stage for repeatedly cutting off her subject and acting like she was the star of the interview.
Brilliant? not really.
Crazy? perhaps, if you count megalomania
