    Today, encyclopedias, jetliners, operating systems, mutual funds, and many other items are being created by teams numbering in the thousands or even millions. While some leaders fear the burgeoning growth of these massive online communities, Wikinomics proves this fear is folly. Smart firms can harness collective capability and genius to spur innovation, growth, and success.

    Overall

    I heard the author speak at a conference recently and he was/is a super speaker, but this book.....

    I am half way through the book now and am finding it a bit slow and heavy on words and opinions but light on examples and cases. There's certainly some good stuff in the material, I was just expecting more.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Overall

    A very entertaining story that moved at a decent pace through the 8 to 10 hours. I am anxious to check out the movie now that I've "read" the book! : )

    If Ridley Jones had slept 10 minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect, with only the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole.

    "Good story, but toooooooo long"
    Overall

    I am ordinarily a fan of the unabridged version of audio books, however this one has me rethinking this approach. The story was interesting and well conceived, but the author often goes into such minute detail about seemingly unimportant details and/or tangents. I think this particular audiobook would have been better in the abridged version.
