A great investment if you're going to change the world,

This review is from: Rules for Revolutionaries: The Capitalist Manifesto for Creating New Products and Services (Hardcover)
What I love about Guy's work is that his books are readable and entertaining memoirs of life "in the trenches" from a person who has been there and lived (make that prospered) to tell about it."Rules For Revolutionaries" first caught my interest as an on-line discussion forum dealing with the challenges of bringing revolutionary products into the technical market. The forum continues, and is the greatest resource I have ever seen for people contemplating developing a new product and looking to find venture capital backing. "Rules for Revolutionaries" should be considered required reading for anyone wishing to join that discussion forum.In my 17 years in the high-tech world, the best advice I've come across are found in the "Churn, baby churn" and "Death Magnets" sections of the book - and "Don't Let Bozosity Grind You Down" is wonderful tonic for the times that the Corporate Bozo's are doing just that.In short, the Dilbertesque managers of the world may find fault with "Rules for Revolutionaries", but for those truly looking to kick down the walls of their cubicle cells, this book is a pardon from the governor.
