Many of his speeches and interviews address pressing topics – such as the “inefficient management” of the Internet – in broad terms, leaving the reader to draw his or her own conclusions from the language of statecraft. Patient readers will discover gems of insight. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends this collection to executives, policy makers, NGO leaders, students, professors and investors seeking insight into one of Earth’s most powerful men.
