5.0 out of 5 stars Success upon success: the mouse takes on the world!, 22 Mar. 2005
By 
This review is from: Israel in The World: Changing Lives Through Innovation (Hardcover)
At a time when Israel is still fighting for it's existance, along comes a book which dramtically shows how Israel has grown from a tiny country, with few natural resources into a world beater. It would shock many, especially those who are anti-Israel, to know just how dependant the world is on Israel. That's what this book does. It's not a dry read, but neither is it political.
Instead, in a style reminiscent of Reader's Digest, it shows how in field after field, Israel has developed new technologies which has made it top in that area. In some areas, it's so far ahead, that there is no competition. For example, cameras incorporated into pills, which as they pass through the body, take 50,000 images, giving doctors the ability to see inside the body.
In short, it's a patriotic flag waving exercise. For those who love Israel, it's an ability to smile, as they see the sucess of this little country. For those who take a broader interest in business and technology, there is much to learn about how to utilise a country's brainpower and the way things are going.
Comments on Israel come from Tony Blair, Bill Gates, Christopher 'Superman' Reeve, and Bill Clinton; with an introduction by Rupert Murdoch. Highly recommended!
