This isn't a bad piece of advice, in my opinion, but it's a little surprising. The new book is called Telecosm: How InfiniteBandwidth Will Revolutionize Our World, and my understanding had been that it would deliver the ultimate vision of George Gilder as worldly philosopher, not "Nine Stocks to Buy Now."
