Good picture of future tech

I personally found chapters 2 and 11 resonate with me. The book talks about the next 30 years and where we are going. It’s very abstract as such there are no tangable actions one can and should do now. It’s a precursor to something tangable I believe. I really liked how this books identifies and discusses novelty to commodity, any euntrepemures dream.

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

Although I agree, this book could be condensed by watching the Simon denim ted talk. I found this book to showcase a number of examples on the good and the bad. The repetition of facts and ideas helps to cement them. It is by no means a reference book like find your why.
I really enjoyed it.
