    1. I bought Mark Cuban's "How To Win At The Sport of Business" and upsold me on this because Cuban wrote the intro. It promised "how innovation will restore the American Dream", which sounded fantastic. I love the promise of a shinier future, I work in an area that thrives on change and innovation, and I've lived and loved the American Dream. Thank you one-click Kindle delivery!Curse you, one-click Kindle delivery! This book is tedious bloviation from a connected but content-free geezer! Lesson [...]

    2. I enjoyed this one. However, I think that it may be a little too late to implement some of the ideas presented here. I hope not, as implementing this program, even half of it, could restore American to the land of opportunity and entrepreneurialism. "it is the fortunate result of our nation's rich and unique stew of individual liberty, constitutional democracy, limited government, free enterprise, social mobility, ethnic diversity, immigrant assimilation, intellectual freedom, property rights, a [...]

    3. You know that republican friend you have who has an answer to every issue (and non-issue) currently facing the US? Well, this is kind of a list of all those solutions, backed up by stats and studies. But, to make the book a little more neutral, he does hang just enough shit on the republicans to make it fairly objective. The intro by Cuban is the best part of the book. After that, you feel like you're at a dinner party with a terrible guest.The problem of course is you read some of the studies a [...]

    4. I liked this book because it was simple to read, the chapters were short, it was a layman's explanation of how to get the economy working again. The author is the president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association and he draws many of his examples from his knowledge of that industry, which is helpful because that's the industry with which most Americans are familiar. We all know something about the advances in the music and movie industries and how we used to get our music/movies and how [...]

    5. There aren't many new ideas here about the role of innovation in the American economy. Conservatives will find a lot to reinforce their ideas about government, trade, and health care. Most other folks will wonder about what is missing. I was disappointed that the only comments about education were (1) an attack on our public education system and the teachers unions and (2) a plea for automatic citizenship for all foreign citizens who obtain doctoral degrees at US universities. What about the edu [...]

    6. As an entrepreneur I agree with about half of the ideas presented to encourage innovation. The other half read like corporate favoritism. I understand Shapiro's point that the government cannot create jobs by overly hampering private enterprise, but many of the concessions would only favor large corporations and stockholders. Yes, somebody has to take the risk to get a profitable start-up going, but he focuses less on small business and its contribution to the economy than making the leap from s [...]

    7. This book is a vanity project Gary Shapiro, without much pretense of really being an interesting book.Somehow he lives in Detroit, yet has "commuted" to Washington DC for many years to run the Consumer Electronics Association.The book is filled with the legislative agenda of that trade association. Shapiro makes all the familiar arguments about why free trade will be great for Americans, etc.And any sentence with the word "innovation" in it sounds good, even if the guy writing it has nothing new [...]

    8. This book is a relatively quick read and contains some interesting ideas. If you can get past some of the blatant bias in the book you will see there are really some well-balanced thoughts here with regard to innovation and how to stimulate not just innovation but the economy through innovation.[More quotes and notes here: booksdevnotes/archive/2]

    9. Very much enjoyed reading this book. This is one amongst those, which i couldn't keep down even when the chapter was over.Great ideas from the past and a gripping narration of the stories of innovative people who had to overcome obstacles to put those ideas or products in our lives today.A must read for every government policy maker. This is the way government should orient policies.

    10. The comeback lays out the belief that for the US economy to truly get out of the economic down turn we must embrace technology and break down the barriers that are impeding our ability to innovate. It discusses the US's history of innovation from Edison to Apple and then discusses the current legal and political environment that discourages innovation and new business creation in the US

    11. Easy to read Could have used more examples to support some of his recommendations. Also, there's no need to repeat.
