Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber, often referred to as JJSS (13 February 1924, in Paris – 7 November 2006, in Fécamp), was a French journalist and politician. He co-founded L'Express in 1953 with Françoise Giroud, and then went on to become president of the Radical Party in 1971. He oversaw its transition to the center-right, the party being thereafter known as Parti radical valoisien.

Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber in his international bestseller, The American Challenge. While this outcome seemed inevitable at the time, half a century later we have fallen far short of that future. The American Challenge is an excellent, vigorous and modern book – that is to say, one free of many of the usual shortcomings and repetitiveness of commonplace thinking. Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, President of France, 1974-1981.

Although first published in 1967, this is quite up to date about European economics, ,may have resulted in the euro, and a good read along with Pikerty's Capital in the 21st century. One reader said it moved him to be a libertarian. It moved me to be a socialist, as the author thought the result of American entrepreneurism should be a four day work week, more vacation, health care for all, and narrowing the gap between rich and poor. Unfortunately the inevitable march of wealth at the top haas given us the opposite.

An amazing international runaway bestseller, both in Europe and the USA, this book influenced a whole generation. It foresaw the information age, and challenged our society to let humans be creative instead of machines. It was a game changer.

40 years later it is still a reference, recommended by famed Silicon Valley entrepreneur Peter Thiel, the president of the World Economic Forum, Professor Klaus Schwab, and by Nobel Prize Paul Krugman (author of the electronic edition preface) among others. This is an important book that helps us today to understand how we missed what were our desired goals back in the 1960s for our civilisation into the 21st century.

Here is what Peter Thiel has to say about The American Challenge (MarketWatch, Oct. 6th 2014): "The book got a lot things right, but certainly there were things that didn't quite happen, and you always have to ask yourselves why they didn't," said Thiel. "This whole category of past books about the future is a very interesting one, and that is one that I always recommend very strongly."

Wel
Excellent partner book with the same author's "The Radical Alternative."

This is not a novel. This is not light reading. This is not the best book for the beach either. It is old and the content played a role in European policy in the last quarter of the last century.
