In comparison with the other 30+ books I recently acquired it is actually truly poor in terms of content and also hugely overpriced (x 4 times). The book lacks methodology – to start with there is a very rudimentary and shallow definition of genius. Then there are many pages with source data that appears like appendices in a work of a university student. The source data (interviews and chats with famous hi-tech people from the US) is presented as typed out manuscripts with obvious or none conclusions. The author is obviously keen to associate himself with some of the people on his genius radar screen and there are photos with him and people he admires….On a positive note: there is a lot of enthusiasm for the topic shown by the author.
