  • "Worst Employee Ever??? That's the P..."

    Overall

    I tried to read the previous review as if the reviewer was employing a little irony, but somehow I think s/he didn't get the joke. Of course Mike Daisey would be an employer's worst nightmare -- but even bad employees should be allowed to tell their stories, especially when they are so hilarious. I thought this book was wonderful on two fronts: a) it's a cautionary tale for today's corporate employers who create soul-less, morale-defeating, cubicle-ridden workplaces (and I was one so I know from whence I speak); b) it's an insightful, way funny story.

    Mike Daisey worked at Amazon.com for nearly two years during the dot-com frenzy of the late nineties. Now that his nondisclosure agreement has expired, he can tell the real story - one that blends tech culture, hero worship, cat litter, Albanian economics, and venture capitalism into a surreal cocktail of delusion.

Tim's greatest hits:
  • All the Rave: The Rise and Fall of Shawn Fanning’s Napster

    "Digital Ponzi Scheme"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    After reading about Napster and Shawn Fanning, the company seem like a digital Ponzi scheme. I'm a child from the Napster era and "All the Rave" was a decent read, but the actual company and leadership was a big joke. Terrible management.

    I don't feel bad for Shawn Fanning. He might had been a good coder, but no leadership and you never do business with family. John Fanning, his uncle, was the reason for Napster failures. Maybe if Shawn's uncle wasn't apart of the company, Napster would still be here.

    They pretty much destroy themselves. The company just sounded shady from the start.

    Even after the death of Napster, any savvy user could easily find these files elsewhere.

    Thank you Napster for bringing the technology of "sharing" to the Internet.

  • Insanely Great: The Life and Times of Macintosh, the Computer that Changed Everything

    "Mac Aficionado (and a request to Audible)"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Any Mac aficionado will love this book. I am very aware of Steven Levy's writing. He is one of the best technology chronologist of our time. Even though I am not a Mac User, I really enjoyed listening about how Apple got started. There is a secret hidden gem about Apple and their stories.

    This company is like a blockbuster movie, lights, action, and drama. There is no other tech company out there like Apple that keep their consumers wanting more. I don't see multiple books about Intel, but there is always an new plot on Apple.

    I really wish that Audible will record more books from Steven Levy, like "Hackers." Please record this book. We are missing out one of the best tech titles in audio. I would pay 2 credits for Hackers without a doubt!

  • Poorly Made in China: An Insider's Account of the Tactics Behind China's Production Game

    "Cutting Corners"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Unlike reading a feature article from WSJ on manufacturing in China and reading a commentary from an economist, you get a first hand look from Paul Midler doing business. I was afraid that it would be all about bashing the Chinese, but it's interesting on the cultural differences and the insightful views on what is going on in the factories.

    We cannot really blame the Chinese at cutting corners at making the products that we use. Just look at your bath towels and most likely it is made in China. Consumers wants lower cost in products and companies wants to maximize profit margins. Sadly, these objectives cannot be meet when it says, "Made in USA."

    As commodity prices rise, the Chinese has to charge according to meet their margins. They only have the upper hand when it comes to labor. People are like robots over there. If the worker is working too slow, they can replace them within seconds with another Chinese to fill the line and keep producing products.

    In the 80's South Korea was notorious of cheap goods and counterfeiting poorly made products, but look at them now. They are surpassing the Japanese in electronics and even in the automotive industry. "Made in China" will have a different stigma as the country progress. The Chinese can make good products, when companies are willing to pay for it, such as Apple. Like the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for." This is true in any business, not only in China.

    As China becomes more industrialized, this reading material will be a history of accuracy what the country used to be.

  • The Intelligent Entrepreneur

    "Not Hypothetical Examples"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I was a little worried when I bought this book. I just thought that it will be another business book with hypothetical examples and trying to solve a math problem as a final exam. I was wrong. This book has three real life examples and their life and passion for their companies. It is almost like taking a class in college on Business 101. It's like being in school, reading their stories and having a followup lecture on what we learned and at the end of the semester, having the real entrepreneurs in class as a guest panel for question and answer.

    This title is well written. The author did a great job at telling their stories and going in depth on what just happened. Good concept on a business book.

    I just wished that there were more of this book and it kinda felt like a infomercial for Harvard Business School.

    I just wanted more, but good and interesting read.

  • "What would we do without Google?"

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    This is great read on the history of Google, it's founders (Larry Page and Sergey Brin), and search technology. In the early days of the internet if you had typed in "newspaper," you would not have gotten "New York Times" or "LA Times" because they didn't have "newspaper" in its title. You had to know exactly what key words would generate the results you wanted. It's amazing to think how far search engines have come -- as you type, they predict what you want and populate key words for you. It is due to Google's extreme focus on technology and goals (speed, measurement, refinement, and openness). And there are many more amazing Google technologies that work seamlessly into our lives, which I have forgotten about -- Google Earth, Google Maps, Google Translate....

    There is a lot of reference to "Googley" people and culture and the company's motto of "don't be evil." I think some readers will find it as a bias towards Google. I think it simply describes a workforce obsessively dedicated to doing what they love. For example, many might argue that Google's entry into China was a major stumble and the book doesn't place much accountability on the executives of Google. I think it was daring that Google did that. Selling technology in China is a high-risk proposition. Corruption and copyright infringements turn many companies away from China. Google had to know failure was very likely. Google took a chance to do something for the people of China. Although they censored results as required by the Chinese government, the users were informed on the page whenever results were censored. It was a small step... but an important step to reflect the value of openness -- the Chinese people were told when they weren't getting everything they wanted to see because the government was censoring it.

    Behind the alarming headlines about job losses, bank bailouts, and corporate greed, there is a little-known story of bad ideas. For 50 years or more, economists have been busy developing elegant theories of how markets work - how they facilitate innovation, wealth creation, and an efficient allocation of society's resources. But what about when markets don't work?

    There was no single, dramatic event that set the current financial crisis off. A whole series of very questionable decisions by many people, in many places, over a period of years, built up the pressures that led to a sudden collapse of the housing market and of financial institutions that began to fall like dominoes as a result of investing in securities based on housing prices. This book is designed to unravel the tangled threads of that story.

Levine created a computerized trading hub named "Island" where small traders swapped stocks, and over time his invention morphed into a global electronic stock market that sent trillions in capital through a vast jungle of fiber-optic cables.

    The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years, in 1914, 1939, and 1971. Each collapse was followed by a period of tumult: War, civil unrest, or significant damage to the stability of the global economy. Now James Rickards, the acclaimed author of Currency Wars, shows why another collapse is rapidly approaching - and why this time, nothing less than the institution of money itself is at risk.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

The major banks are bigger and more profitable than before the 2008 crash, and legislators are all but powerless to bring them to heel.
