But as a white American with no nationalistic horse in the race, whose bar for great entrepreneurs had been set by the likes of Larry Ellison and Mark Zuckerberg, I just wanted to report what I saw without preference or judgement. I expected as a result there would be something for everyone to hate in the book: That many Americans would criticize me for not grandstanding more about the moral issues in China, that Indians would say I was too harsh on the infrastrucutre failings and crippling poverty of the subcontintent, and that Israelis would find the criticisms of how their entrepreneurs have performed over the last decade as overly harsh.
So as someone who didn't take pains to excoriate countries for thier local conditions, Mike's reaction was surprising to me. Perhaps I spent so much time in these countries, I began to take some of the conditions as a given. But it might also say something about me.
Sounds like some book.
