  • #1 in waste-water recycling
  • #1 in Nobel Prize winners per capita
  • #2 in the world level of innovation scale

A book that will shatter your axioms and answer your questions!

  • Is the Israeli economy really prosperous?
  • Does Israel have a shortage of water?
  • Is the cultural and economic boycott working?
  • Is the US security aid for Israel’s military expenses, bad for the American economy?

In Israel – Island of Success, the author duo explores the reasons why Israel is a successful, booming economy, and all that in a relatively short period of time. If you’ve ever wondered how that is even possible, then this book can certainly open your eyes.

For me, I enjoyed most of the book, but some parts went over my head – I’m not very well-versed in economics, or the military situation, and I sometimes struggled to understand all those parts, and they didn’t quite interest me as much as the rest of the book either. I much preferred the parts that spoke about business and science.

I also thought the title was quite clever: although Israel isn’t an island as such, it is an island in the sense that it stands alone, as an unique country in the Middle East.
