Lots of jargon, little practical.
This book boils down to the advice - "Buy the stocks that will go up".
I'm being slightly facetious, but only slightly. The author endlessly extolls the virtues of buying highly experimental companies that are "innovation leaders" (Enron? Worldcom?) and ignoring old fashioned ideas like earnings and PE ratios. He spends a lot of time telling us we *should* have bought Microsoft in 1990 or Google in 2000, but is strikingly vague on how exactly we were supposed to know *at the time* what seperated them from the hundreds of tech comapnies that went bust. I certainly accept that traditional value-investing metrics have their limits, but I don't believe that crystal ball gazing is a productive activity in investing. And this book relies very heavily on the idea that the future can be consistently predicted.
The book is also groaning under the weight of soundbite phrases of the authors own invention. "Change quake" "Ever-net" "Techonomy" "S-curb transformation" "Game over dominator" and numerous others that all had me rolling my eyes.
The author narrates his own book, which is probably wise since I can't imagine anyone else speaking this stuff with such enthusiasm.
