Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Silver, an investment banker and author of 28 books on finance and entrepreneurship, writes with verve and assurance about the future. First he identifies trends in education, business, demographics, health care, and technology. Then he describes 100 companies which, by virture of their product or service, are poised to take a quantum leap in profitability; he forecasts that if you work for one of those companies (and get stock options), or if you buy stock, you'll be rich in five years. No bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
