The New Da Vinci Code?
Over at Digitopoly Joshua Gans says that the breezy style of Launching the Innovation Renaissance (Nook, iTunes) makes it a page-turner “reminiscent of Dan Brown.”!!! I take this to mean that the book will sell millions of copies and be turned into a movie starring Tom Hanks; this does seem unlikely but after the Moneyball and Freakonomics movies who can say? FYI, Joshua is more confident than I am that the Coase theorem applies to rent division.
Over at Slate, Matt Yglesias also offers a short review saying the worst thing about the book is that it is too short!
Nick Schulz interviewed me at The American on some of the book’s themes, the WSJ also published part of this interview in their Notable and Quotable section.
