This book is an analytical & anecdotal look at the design business that is in a dire need of an update (It's over a decade out of date).
I was personally looking forward to listening to this, I like books about design in general. However with this book's focus being on the business side (some information is still relevant today) with anecdotes from those 60 leaders, the value of the business information has diminished immensely.
It was an average book, got some nice insights out of it but overall it is antiquated.
First off, it's a great read/listen. Tina Fey does an excellent job of reading and writing her Bossypants. I just went into it thinking there would be more laughs; What I got instead was light on the laughs and heavy on the heartfelt. Touching, honest and pretty funny, Tina Fey made a really nice experience.
It reminded me a lot of Zombie, Spaceship, Wasteland by Patton Oswalt. I also expected that book to also be "Funny", but was incredibly heartfelt and enjoyable.
I think her performance and delivery of her own material give her personal experiences weight and volume. If someone else read this it would sound flat and disingenuous.
There's a part in the book where she talks about her relationship with her dad.
Pick this book up if you like hearing about amazing people working hard and being successful. It's an honest boook.
