The book is in the genre of "Startup Nation." Since "Startup Nation" there have been many books trying to explain Israel's success in different areas. This book does not focus on any specific areas, but does review the ground first covered in "Startup Nation."

Wonderful book!

I was searching for the word “Chutzpah” and I bumped over this book. I read it in one shot. Almost spent a night reading. One of the best books I read in 2019. The author gives a wonderful picture of raising kids in innovative life style. I could relate a lot to it as my mom ( who is a hero to me) , raised us with similar values the author shares in the book. I shared the importance of this book to many of my friends. And they are buying and reading it. Look forward to hear some

The beginning of the book is amazing and sets the stage well. It was very insightful to see how kids are raised to nurture Chutzpah! As the book progressed I felt author digressed too much to Military side and made the book more monotone. Its a good quick read for gleaning some great intricacies-of Israeli society and startup ecosystem- for the later part lacked on data and more references would have been good.

Amazing read! Inbal does a great job at explaining the elements of Israeli culture that have allowed entrepreneurship and innovation to flourish in the country. In doing this, she has also provided deep insight into what entrepreneurship is all about.

I highly recommend this to anyone interested in entrepreneurship and all it entails.

I applaud any positive writing about Israel as the news is only full of negative reports. It is part of the Israeli culture for the young people to be raised to be open minded and explore opportunities. Very well done book, I recommend it to anyone interested in entrepreneurship.
