I got this book because I was fascinated by his biographies of Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein and wanted to see what this mashup of biographies would be like. The result is mesmerizing. I enjoyed this book through and through. The pacing is great and the new ingredient is how Walter weaves together the different stories with a very clear storyline. Highly recommended!

I read (listened to) Capitalism Without Capital per recommendation by Bill Gates and I agree with the overall ratings I have seen for it. At first the book seemed slow and rather bricky, however as technical explanation passed and the author touched on the dynamics of economy in the age of intangibles, I really enjoyed. When discussing about infrastructure and legislation to facilitate growth, I kept thinking I wish the new president of my country read this book. To the end the reading becomes dull again, but I must say that this is still, one of the best paced and entertaining books of economics that I have ever read. #Audible1 #IntangibleEconomics
