This book has a lot to say about how to foster serendipity and creativity. In its best moments it pulls from creative sources like surfing and World of Warcraft. In its less creative moments in falls back on the rather rote narratives of Silicon Valley.

The book is valuable. It shares a number of keen observations about how things are changing, speculates on possible outcomes, and offers suggestions on how to take advantage of those changes.

The book falls short in meeting its potential because, frankly, the authors fell into a number of common traps that business/management books fall into: winner bias, digital worship, and knowledge worker emphasis.

Please don't take that as a warning to not read this book but rather encouragement to keep going as the book will reward your patience.
