    "Totally Bias"

    The book conclusions are politically bias, with an over simplistic mantra that free markets are the answer to every problem. I couldn't find much value on the Innovation tips, rather than the common sense knowledge you'd got from any other business book. Finally, the whole Ninja metaphor is just hard to swallow as the theory is full of holes from what the ninjas from Japan do and what an “Innovator Ninja” should.

    "No Killer Strategies Here"

    I have to agree with what another reviewer (Juarez) said here, the book meanders in so many directions that it's difficult really understand what the book is about. I made it to chapter 9 before decided that the book is more of an autobiography of Gary Shapiro's admitted very cool life. If you want to hear about Shapiro's interactions with Bill Gates and Steve Jobs or testifying on Capitol Hill, then this is the book for you. However, There's not much innovation strategy here.

    Check out anything by Clayton Christensen or even Drucker's classic, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

    "Interesting theme, good stories"

    The main strength is this is an insider's view of of the electronics industry. There are also many other interesting business stories, nicely told. The premise, act like a Ninja to succeed, is novel, but readers will have to judge just when to apply these ideas. Looking back in time one can find success in emulating Ninjas and failure otherwise, but one can cherry pick as needed to suit the theme. Still, I did enjoy this very much. There is a lot of sane analysis in here. Note also that the author is a stong free market proponent. NI made me think much more about what innovation really means, and why it is so very important. So, I just changed my overall to 5 from four!
