A fascinating expert look at Israel's meteoric rise in the global economy -- with timely hints for a world reeling from financial crisis

Start-Up Nation addresses the trillion-dollar question: How is it that Israel -- a country of 7.1 million, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war, with no natural resources -- produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful nations like Canada, Japan, China, India, and the U.K.' With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine Israeli culture and government to reveal the secrets behind the world's first ever "start-up nation." As countries across the globe restart their own economies, and as businesses try to re-energize their entrepreneurial spirit, we can all look to Israel for some impressive, surprising clues.

Very interesting, insightful, and well-written story. A reader, regardless of how much they already know of Israel, will be amazed with all the new things they will learn about Israeli innovation and international relations. A reader will also learn much about Israeli culture as the book explores why Israel is as innovative as it currently is. This story explores economics, lifestyle, education, and military service in Israel, as well as behaviour and values of Israelis in an interesting way. Great read for anyone interested in or studying business, economics or even politics.

One of the best books I've ever read that combines a history lesson with how a smart nation can cultivate a entrepreneur spirit for benefit of all.

Great book on how a small country can develop itself.
The biggest challenge to its sustainability is its growing population of people who are not contributing to the economy and yet live within the country.

interesting read and good insight into the development of Israel, but ex-soviet Ph.D.s and US money likely helped the country's 'start-up' miracle
