Thou Shalt Innovate tells the remarkable story of how Israeli technology has helped not only Israelis, but the entire world. No country in history has contributed so much to humankind in the first seventy years of its existence. --Alan Dershowitz, Emeritus Harvard law professor; author, The Case for Israel
The secret of Israel's innovation is about leadership, determination, and, perhaps above all, about seeing opportunity when others predict failure. Thou Shalt Innovate gives readers a valuable insight into Israeli innovation and entrepreneurship, together with some inspiring lessons in leadership. --Meir Brand, CEO, Google Israel --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

While some of his stories may be familiar to readers, such as Israel’s notable contribution in drip irrigation, others such as the Grain Cocoon invented by Shlomo Navarro, which helps farmers in the developing world stave off the serious loss of grain caused by insects, are less well known. Some of the companies he writes about (and part of the story he tells reveal the unique government/private partnerships in Israel that provides seed money from the government, leading to the formation of private companies) are on the cusp of making it big. Among these are ReWalk, a firm that makes an exoskeleton allowing for paraplegics to enjoy enhanced mobility, which sadly will not benefit its remarkable creator, Amit Goffer, because the ReWalk requires full control of one’s upper body, which Goffer’s own injury left impaired. Part of the appeal of the book is that it provides examples of cooperation between Israel’s often contentious Jewish, Arab and Christian citizens. Alpha Omega, the largest Arab led high-tech company in Israel, an innovator in devices for deep brain stimulation, makes devices that are used around the world in the treatment of epilepsy and other neurological diseases. Eli Beer’s clever transformation of motorcycles into mini-ambulances has led to volunteers from every segment of Israel’s population, including the Druze and Bedouin and ultra-Orthodox, racing to come to those in medical need. Avi Jorisch’s book is a fascinating look at how Israeli technology is changing the world for the better, while also showing that technology can build bridges between communities, perhaps offering a glimmer of hope for a more peaceful future in the Mideast.
In addition to the fascinating individual stories, the book has a detailed Appendix of "Israel's Fifty Greatest Contributions to the World" which, in itself, is mind blowing. So now I am asking myself, my husband, children and grandchildren "what are the 5 rules of life in our home?'
