The Monk and the Riddle

from the Silicon-Valley-scolding dept

Salon has a review of The Monk and the Riddle by Randy Komisar. Salon points out both the good and bad ideas in the book. It sounds like the book has some good points concerning the rampant short term mentality of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, and how they are mostly focused on making money, rather than creating real businesses. However, on the down side, the book sounds like it’s a bit hypocritical in that it’s written by a guy who has made a ton of money on Silicon Valley startups and has cashed out. The fact is that most people who are starting companies, even if it’s simply for short term gain, aren’t going to be swayed by some book that tells them to follow what’s in their heart instead.
