It was very good. Although, it doesn't go into small businesses much, it's mostly about large businesses. I loved the history lesson on Sears, JCP and other big name companies and how they got started and how they fell. It's good to know these things as your company grows and reminds you to make things scalable and be aware of falling down fast.
I enjoyed it as it has lots of facts and stuff. I wish it had more about small business and how the new rules of retail can benefit us the little guys.
This book is just simply amazing. I read a book by Jay Elliot about Steve Job's leadership and his ups and down. That was a good book but this book completes Steve Jobs. Must read even if you are not a Mac fan.
I used to argue with my co-workers about PC vs Mac wars 4-5 years ago. Now that I have an iPhone, iPod, iPad, I can't believe I lived 31 years of my life without these devices. Maybe cause there weren't invented back then but I can't imagine the future without these.
Now, I'm an Apple fan boy. Now that I know how hard Steve had to work to give us what we want and need, It's that much sweeter to own an Apple product.
Listen to the audio book. It's long but worth it.
It's not the greatest but it's good. Gary is correct on new age of Social Media and how it should be leveraged. His points are valid and I love the part where he talks about not using charity to gain a name for your company.
It's a scary book if you are a religious person. If you keep an open mind and listen to all the reasons Why Evolution Is True, you may see life in a different light. It's just facts that evolution is real. We believe that whales are mammals and have evolved. Heck we believe everything has evolved except human beings.
The world, the universe, the time and space had to come from somewhere. I wonder from where, hmmmmm.
I loved the book called "The Google Story." That was good and so was this. Lots of details on literally how Google thinks, works and shapes our lives :) Great title.
Loved the interview at the end with Marisa Myers. I'm a Google fan boy and this book hit the spot. Thanks, Steven Levy :)
This book is great as it gives you insights on $$$ of facebook. I love the facts on the dollar evaluations throughout the several stages on the company. The author did his research as the book goes in great details about Mark Z. and his character as well as his homies.
I love the way the content is arranged. As I was almost done listening for a day, it made me want to listen more. I couldn't stop. Very good book. Highly recommend it as it is very important for us to know where we are giving out our private information on the web. You reveal so much in facebook that you have no idea. It's scary that facebook has so much data on our behavior and lives.
Listen to this book!!!!
I enjoyed this book. I love the real life stories of three entrepreneurs who went through some of the hurdles that I'm facing now. I also love the last part of the round table discussion between the author and the three main characters of the book. Besides all the education, it's neat to learn about the individual companies listed in the book.
Highly recommended for anyone who is thinking of launching a new business.
