Work in Progress

This book is a work in progress. What you are reading now is a rough draft with lots of problems and placeholders.

The process of writing in this way is an example of what I call the “knowledge loop” in the book. The knowledge loop consists of learning, creating and sharing. My writing is based on what I have learned. By sharing early, others can learn from my ideas and I in turn can learn from their feedback.

I know how powerful this approach is from my experience with blogging for the last 8 years. I have learned a great deal from reader comments. The same will be true here.

You can see some of the amazing initial feedback. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time. You can either comment inline by highlighting text or email me at

I am using gitbook to write World After Capital and you can track the changes I am making on github. I retain final “commit rights” for changes and as such take responsibility for any and all errors.

There is also a separate FAQ which I will be updating periodically.
