Praise for The New Polymath”Bravo! In a work that’s fresh and inviting, Mirchandani shares with us his case studies in innovation and creativity. It’s no small irony that the ‘IT revolution’ has created a technology industry that all too easily falls back on bromides and received wisdom. Mirchandani inspires us to return to IT’s roots, with the transformative power that comes from putting technology innovation in service to business and society.”
-Benjamin Fried, CIO, Google, Inc.
“At DeVry Education, we are focused on the next-generation workforce that will build the Polymath enterprises of tomorrow. So, it’s good to see the book touch on such a wide range of technologies–from cloud computing to emerging medicine–that are shaping our curriculum. We are always looking for innovation, including online classes and instructional labs, and this book has got us thinking in new directions.”
–Daniel Hamburger, President and CEO, DeVry Inc.
“In this fascinating book, Mirchandani, himself an example of the new breed of Polymaths that he defines, brings into a sharp focus exactly what has been achieved by those who have the remarkable ability to combine and mix technology elements. An excellent read on multiple levels: to learn from; to be entertained by; and most of all, to leave you wondering what you could personally achieve.”
–Andy Mulholland, Global Chief Technology Officer, Capgemini
“A brilliant read. In order for individuals and companies to fully maximize new century opportunities–and stay abreast of a constantly morphing technological frontier–Mirchandani not only gives examples of the Polymath framework, but concrete evidence for successful leveraging. Thanks to technology, we can all be Polymaths if we open our minds to the possibilities. Consider this book your guide–I think da Vinci would be proud.”
–Linda Avey, cofounder, 23andMe
