"From the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel's Economic Miracle comes the highly anticipated follow up, The Genius of Israel, which outlines the defining factors behind Israel's successful track record of innovation and explaining how other nations can learn from its development.In Start-Up Nation, Saul Singer and Dan Senor addressed the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel-a country of 7.1 million, only sixty years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources-produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada, and the UK? Providing an astute analysis of Israel's unique policies and culture, and practical conclusions about how other nations could learn from its example, Start-Up Nation became a worldwide bestseller, translated into thirty languages. Now in their illuminating follow-up, The Genius of Israel, Senor and Singer study the global innovation race and present a new universal metric to evaluate where different nations stand in the quest to achieve new levels of innovation. They analyze the favorable and unfavorable circumstances that affect a country's chance of making a dramatic leap forward, and illustrate how the world has greatly changed over the last decade. Bold, timely, and remarkably insightful, Senor and Singer's latest work shines an important light on the impressive innovative accomplishments of Israel"-- Provided by publisher.
