I found this book very interesting and an easy listen. The authors use analysis and anecdote to show how and why Israel's startup culture has become a major success story. Israelis thrive on chaos, controversy and risk and are not afraid to fail. Unfortunately, I found one major drawback with the audiobook: Just about every Hebrew name is appallingly mispronounced. This is especially annoying since 90% of this book's content consists of naming people, places and companies. It seems strange that the publishers did not bother to have the audio track reviewed by a Hebrew-speaking editor. Despite this major failing, I did find the book worth the listening time.

A fascinating insightful audio book and a remarkable story of the entrepreneurial spirit of a people surrounded by enemies in a land with no natural resources, who produce more start up companies than any other nation. A great audio!

Very well put together and inspiring. However I do think that, perhaps, too much attention was paid for the military service aspect of Israeli society. A good summation of the history of tech and the things that will affect it in the future.
Audio was clear, crisp and without glitches. This has clearly been read as an audiobook not a spoken book - phraseology like "early in this audio book" which is good to hear.
All round a very interesting insight into Israeli society and business. Well worth a credit. I was also able to listen to it at x2 speed because of the quality of the speech.
Would you consider the audio edition of Start-Up Nation to be better than the print version?
A great deal of anecdotal and interview-based material that provides a compelling and enthralling listening experience.Genuinely excellent right until the end.
It's all about the the the Israeli culture and the entrepreneurship sprit.
Overall It's a good book to listen for.
This is a must read. Insights into Israel and what it means to be a startup culture.
