Synopsis: How entrepreneurs find the next big thing-and make it huge.

The era of easy money and easy jobs is officially over. Today, we're all entrepreneurs, and the tides of change threaten to capsize anyone who plays it safe. Taking risks is the name of the game-but how can you tell a smart bet from a stupid gamble?

Andy Kessler has made a career out of seeing the future of business, as an analyst, investment banker, venture capitalist, and hedge fund manager. He evaluated the business potential of the likes of Steve Jobs and Michael Dell before they were Steve Jobs and Michael Dell. His eye for what's next is unparalleled.

Now Kessler explains how the world's greatest entrepreneurs don't just start successful companies-they overturn entire industries. He offers twelve surprising and controversial rules for these radical entrepreneurs, such as:

? Eat people: Get rid of worthless jobs to create more wealth for everybody
? Create artificial scarcity for virtual goods
? Trust markets to make better decisions than managers

Whether you're at a big corporation or running a small business, you're now an entrepreneur. Will you see change coming and grab on to opportunity or miss the boat?

From Publishers Weekly: Kessler (Running Money) has interviewed technology billionaires and game changers like Michael Dell and Mark Zuckerberg in an attempt to determine what their success has in common, and combines this empirical data with his own impressive experience for his latest book. Kessler knows his industry, and understands business (though most of his ideas can be found elsewhere). He approaches his subject with an irreverent, cocky attitude that will likely divide readers, and gives advice that comes heavily colored by his own political and philosophical outlook; while he doesn't come right out and say it, he's clearly a fan of Ayn Rand and is quick to accuse environmentalists or anyone concerned over the impact of industry on the planet as both blocking progress and mooching off of the successful. Readers who can move past his derisive ideology will find Kessler's ideas useful. And his big questions will help would-be entrepreneurs figure out if their new idea is good, bad, or revolutionary.
