It's a horribly written book. Basically a bunch of conference papers thrown together. There are several interesting arguments and ideas, though. But it's a classic publish-and-forget book, not one where the author strove to refine his theories.

I've noticed that the predecessors seem to often be from a different culture/language. I guess that makes the "failure" much easier to achieve.
Vaguely related: it looks like the legal power of US megacorps with their legions of lawyers and the USPTO their pet tends to stop at the Chinese border. Funny that.
