    Simplicity isn’t just a design principle at Apple - it’s a value that permeates every level of the organization. The obsession with Simplicity is what separates Apple from other technology companies. It’s what helped Apple recover from near death in 1997 to become the most valuable company on Earth in 2011. Thanks to Steve Jobs’s uncompromising ways, you can see Simplicity in everything Apple does: the way it’s structured, the way it innovates, and the way it speaks to its customers.

    Stefan says: "The inner workings of Apple revealed"
    "CEO, Engineer, or marketing person you need this."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book can show anyone in business how to use the 'simple stick'


    What did you like best about this story?

    Things are too complicated. Simple is better, but simple is HARD. This book has a lot of great examples on not only how but most importantly WHY.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are in business or just want to learn how to simplify life, this one is for you. Yes it's about Steve Jobs and Apple but that is the benchmark to use in how to do things the simple way.

    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    Jeff says: "Great for the stories."
    "This is a MUST for anyone in the software world"

    Story
    Would you listen to In the Plex again? Why?

    I had no idea. Yes I thought I understood google since I've been in software design for 20 years. Then I listened to this. Now I get it. Googly is IMPORTANT. People are IMPORTANT. It's all about the engineering.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Total behind the scenes breakdown of Google and how they became the behemoth they are.


    Any additional comments?

    First section is about algorithms. If you are a coder its fascinating. Others may find it tedious but get past it. It's needed to 'get' Google. The rest of the book more than makes up for it.
