    Start-Up Nation addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel - a country of 7.1 million, only 60 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?

    Story

    I'm studying a master in Innovation and Entrepreneurship and one of my professors recommended this book and after reading it, as if by serendipity, we were told that my class would be doing a study trip to Tel Aviv University. During our trip, ALL of the guest speakers mentioned the book either directly, or indirectly through cultural references, and I could see that everything that was mentioned in the book had a basis.

    I have to say that it really opened my eyes and gave me a greater understanding of Israel as an innovation powerhouse. Very inspirational, and a must read for anyone that is interested in how innovation ecosystems are born.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the worlds scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives.

    Story

    A great tale, mixing engineering, history and drama. You really get an insight into the characters' personalities and motivations. Great description of the places and the general feeling of the time within the story. It kept me hooked!
