On several occasions I have raved about Amar Bhidé's The Venturesome Economy: How Innovation Sustains Prosperity in a More Connected World. In preparation for a presentation today, I put together a brief (four slides) Special PPT Presentation—which is attached and all yours. (Sorry it's not annotated—it may be more or less self-explanatory. Anyway, I don't care; you should have long ago purchased and ingested the utterly original tome.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
