    Narain Gehani tells the fascinating story of the transition Bell Labs is undergoing as it adapts to new business conditions. Bell Labs researchers, who once were free to focus on innovation, research excellence, and prizes, now have to worry about business relevance. The culture of lifetime employment is gone and the pendulum has swung from basic to applied research.

    Overall

    This could have been a great book about a special organization if it had dealt with the history of the Bell Labs. Instead it is a rambling, redundant set of almost generic statements. "Scientists are different from business people. Business people are different from scientists. And - did you know that scientists are different from business people?..."

    There are some interesting bits - but they are sprinkled throughout the redundancies.
