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.
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.
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
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.
Great book, highly recommended.
Well narrated (it's dan!)
Amazing story (never knew he went through so much)
An awesome reminder that mindfulness can be achieved by anyone even if they think theyre not cut out for it!
Give this one a listen, its worth it
This audio cannot be described! It is astonishingly mind blowing!
Kept my brain at full throttle! Allan Watts is a brilliant and genius philosopher and public speaker. Get this and listen to the most awesome things you can ever hear.
Please note that this audio has tremendous replay value and one must hear it over and over to truly understand it.
Great insight on what a wartime CEO should be like. All we hear is how a CEO should be peaceful, great to hear the second part of the story for a change.
The book is basically split into two parts, first part being the story behind Netscape, Loudcloud and OpsWare and the second being and management dos and do nots if youre managing a big corporation. I enjoyed the first part much more.
The narrator was not that super though. Could have picked someone with a tone more suited for the book he was reading.
