    Behind the bitter rivalry between Apple and Google - and how it’s reshaping the way we think about technology. The rise of smartphones and tablets has altered the business of making computers. At the center of this change are Apple and Google, two companies whose philosophies, leaders, and commercial acumen have steamrolled the competition. In the age of Android and the iPad, these corporations are locked in a feud that will play out not just in the marketplace but in the courts and on screens around the world.

    What made the experience of listening to Dogfight the most enjoyable?

    I rarely write any reviews about books I listen to. But this was a great one. The facts and the personalities conveyed in this book are crucial to understand how Apple and Google grew together to become the companies they are now. Some stuff are really fascinating.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book contains two story lines in my opinion. One is how Apple and Google evolved as companies and the struggles and strategies they underwent. And the other one which to my surprise has won my ears and heart, is the story of how Steve Jobs got along with 1-) Google's Cofounders Sergei and Larry, and how Steve Jobs handled his cancer during that. It shows very clearly that his attitude towards things was shifting back and forth with his illness and how desperate he was.


    Have you listened to any of J. P. Demont’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration tone was perfect, accentuated when needed but not over the top. Sometimes the characters' voices got mixed up and in certain conversations didn't know who talked to know (maybe it's due to my poor focus sometimes). But this is my first listen to Demont and I would certainly do it again. Cheers


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moments in the book moved me, Apple's pre iPhone release preparations, Apple's iPhone unveiling specifics and how Jobs practiced and how the iPhone was being stitched up for the demo. The relationship fissure between Google and Apple, how Apple and google worked together to get maps up and running.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, highly recommended.
