I'm with squark.

An author who writes wrong stuff with great eloquence and a unique voice is still wrong. With a little more effort, and a physicist consultant, Gilder could probably have gotten the physics right and still have communicated well.

Of course, I'm by definition another curmudgeon, since I also have a Ph.D. in (theoretical) physics, and I believe in getting things right if at all possible.

Is it only physics that outsiders can get dead wrong and not have most people care?
