    In Ninja Innovation, Gary Shapiro, the head of the Consumer Electronics Association, answers the universal question - What leads to success? - revealing how everyone can use the ninja way to create a killer strategy that will help them achieve their own goals. "Ninja Innovation" is his ultimate how-to for envisioning, executing, and maintaining a successful innovation-based strategy like those utilized in the technology world.

    Story

    The book conclusions are politically bias, with an over simplistic mantra that free markets are the answer to every problem. I couldn't find much value on the Innovation tips, rather than the common sense knowledge you'd got from any other business book. Finally, the whole Ninja metaphor is just hard to swallow as the theory is full of holes from what the ninjas from Japan do and what an “Innovator Ninja” should.

    Leaders tend to obstinately stick to the leadership style that brought them most success in the past, usually one of two extreme styles: functional leadership that focuses on operational excellence or smart leadership that focuses on growth. When a leader's focus is too functional, the organization becomes introverted and can focus too much on bottom-line profitability while missing out on top-line growth opportunities. But when leaders focus too much on smart leadership, the organization may experience quick growth but lose its effectiveness quickly.

    It is like the authors got every other business theory and put it in a blender. The Business Leader vs. Functional Leader aproach the book takes it is over simplistic and even the leaders they mentioned in ther tales do not fall in one case or another. Don't waste your time like I did.

    If Apple is Silicon Valley's answer to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, then author Adam Lashinsky provides listeners with a golden ticket to step inside. This primer on leadership and innovation, offers exclusive new information about how Apple innovates. It should appeal to anyone hoping to bring some of that Apple magic to their own company, career, or creative endeavor.

    Story

    Inside Apple shows the other side of Steve's story and it's an excellent companion to that book. It deeply describes how the company works, what drives its employees and what makes Apple the company with the best products in the market.

  • Ghost in the Wires: My Adventures as the World’s Most Wanted Hacker

    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost in the Wires the most enjoyable?

    Great read for those who are not from the IT area, even better if you are. The history is so incredible that you feel you're listening one great spy thriller and not a biography.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitnick resembles the character of the White Collar TV series, Neil Cafrey. You will like him and cheer for him even when he is comiting wrong doings
