Great content, horrible narrator
Great! Many points only true to US though...
Lots of solid advice and specific items that I'd like to research in more detail.
Yes, because he's got experience...
Very US specific, some advice extremely tough to implement, specifically about the role of government. In the Middle East, with high friction between borders, government plays crucial role at least logistically and bureaucratically.. .
