The iconic book is more relevant now than when it was written.
I lived in Australia for 18 years before I read this book. Every single conclusion the author had reached I had reached independently with no outside help or hints from any other literature. I found I was so synchronized with his evaluation I could not draw any distinctions between his writing and my own.
I cannot describe the cruel, horrible tragedy of living in a country which has led the entire world in innovation and has never profited from any of it. Software development, The C language, most of the paradigms that govern the modern era were created here. Countless engineering and physical marvels and breakthroughs. Untold excellence in every field from astrophysics to neuroscience. Not a single one of these breakthroughs has created any industry or business or success here - rather they are immediately purchased and taken offshore to create industry elsewhere.
Australia is not a land where merit is rewarded. Quite the opposite. I can't begin to tell you how many people I have met here who are clearly ten times better than me at software development and not a single one of them has ever been anything but a pariah or shunned outcast inside of their own company. Exceptional people are treated like lepers or carnival freaks in Australia. Hardly a surprise the emigration rate is astronomical.
