Andy Kessler is a columnist with the Wall Street Journal whose new book “Eat People and Other Unapologetic Rules for Game-Changing Entrepreneurs”  takes a different and somewhat irreverent view of entrepreneurship today.  The book is an easy read and combines a new spin on some classic economic theories along with different ideas for the “new” economy.  I do not agree with all of his theories or conclusions and I doubt you will either.  But the book is thought provoking and gives a person of my generation a different perspective.  It’s worth the time and a fun read.


Check out “Eat People and Other Unapologetic Rules for Game-Changing Entrepreneurs” at or visit author Andy Kessler's website.
