The New Polymath. Profiles in compound-technology innovations. Vinnie Mirchandani. 2010. ISBN 9780470618301. You can imagine that on my desk I have several (today 21) books to choose from to read. I was really peeved when I picked up Vinnies book when it first arrived for a quick scan. I could not put it down. But I had tons of work to do on other projects! But this book is too important to not read immediately. If you work in Tech and intend to do well , you must read this book . One reviewer called it a fire hose of information on what is here and what is coming. Plus it is just a delightful read. His interviews and examples are concise and relevant. this is an author who has really done his homework. I can not imagine how hard he worked on this book. Run out, buy it and read it this summer. He has two blogs, http://dealarchitect.typepad.com/ and http://www.florence20.typepad.com/ They are both great.
