他在書中提出兩項對策，其一是教導孩子基本的結婚觀念，其二是給予年輕人夢想和希望，「政府應該向這些年輕人展示明確的國家藍圖，讓他們相信未來一片光明，一定會比現在更美好，我們必須營造當年那種不顧一切而工作的興奮感。」說都底，年輕人最需要的是希望，希望就是力量。正如國際廣告人Paul Arden的暢銷書《It's not how good you are, It's how good you want to be》所講述，一個人，即使一無所有，只要心存希望，就能擁有一切；反之，即使擁有一切，但若喪失希望，也會失去一切。
Theranos developed a blood-testing device named Edison. The company said the device uses a few drops of blood obtained via a finger-stick, rather than vials of blood obtained via traditional venipuncture, utilizing microfluidics technology. By the summer of 2014, its founders had raised over $400 million from investors, valuing the company at $9 billion.
In October 2015, controversy surrounding the company's blood testing process arose after a report in The Wall Street Journal raised concerns about the accuracy of its Edison device. An independent U.S. government review by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reported inaccurate testing results and multiple deficiencies in sample handling during a recent inspection.
In June 1, 2016, Forbes revised its estimate of the company's net worth to $800 million.
On July 7, 2016, Theranos announced that it had received notice from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the revocation of its CLIA certificate. Sanctions include a prohibition of the owners and operators from owning or operating a lab for two years and a civil monetary penalty.
On October 5, 2016, Theranos announced that it would close its laboratory operations, shutter its wellness centers and lay off around 40 percent of its work force, while henceforth focusing on an initiative to create miniature medical testing machines.
...All marketers today need baseline skills in data and analytics. Today’s marketer needs to go well beyond reporting and metrics, and be more proficient in a full range of analytical skills –including knowledge of data management principles and analytical strategies, and an understanding of the role of data quality, the importance of data governance, and the value of data in marketing disciplines. Marketers today also need a nuanced understanding of current and emerging digital channels.
...Our goal is to hire marketers who have a passion for and understand the value of data and analytics in decision making. This is not as hard as it was ten years ago. The modern marketer has evolved from being purely creative and logistics driven to appreciating data and the role of analytics. Anyone accustomed to measuring digital and social media efforts or experimenting with A/B web pages or one-to-one marketing is primed to use more advanced analytics to measure the overall value of a program. You’re not killing creativity or innovation, just seeking naturally curious employees with updated skills.
