Saul Singer is the co-author, with Dan Senor, of the best-selling book Start-Up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle. He is a former Editorial Page Editor and columnist at the Jerusalem Post. Tom Brokaw called Start-Up Nation, “a playbook for every CEO who wants to develop the next generation of corporate leaders.” The book has reached #5 on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal business bestseller lists, and is also a best-seller in Israel, India, and Singapore.
The book has sparked reactions as diverse as Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declaring at one point, “We are the Start-Up Nation!” to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria calling it “A book every single Arab businessman, Arab bureaucrat, and Arab politician should read.” Citing Start-Up Nation, the Economist proclaimed, “Over the past two decades Israel has been transformed from a semi-socialist backwater into a high-tech superpower.” The book is also being published in Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Turkish, Czech, Bulgarian, Arabic and Hebrew.
