Abstract

"Secrets of Silicon Valley: What Everyone Else Can Learn from the Innovation Capital of the World." Deborah Perry Piscione. Palgrave Macmillan. April 2013. --- While the global economy languishes, one place just keeps growing despite failing banks, uncertain markets, and high unemployment: Silicon Valley. In the last two years, more than 100 incubators have popped up there, and the number of angel investors has skyrocketed. In Secrets of Silicon Valley, entrepreneur and media commentator Deborah Perry Piscione aims to take readers inside this vibrant ecosystem, exploring Silicon Valley’s exceptionally risk-tolerant culture, and why it thrives despite the many laws that make California one of the worst states in the union for business. Reviewed by Merlin Linehan.
