One of the most enjoyable books I've recently completed is Start-Up Nation by Dan Senor and Saul Singer. The book's subject is the entrepreneurial culture in Israel, the country with the greatest concentration of innovation in the world. I found much of the book eye-opening and informative, and I definitely learned a lot about Israel that I didn't know, including many lessons that could translate to improve innovation in the US.
