Winners and Losers tells the stories of some of the most innovative businesses of recent times, explaining how a few succeeded in creating and dominating entirely new markets while so many others die in today¹s ferociously competitive online era.
Explaining clearly, with many interesting examples, what contributes to success and failure in creating and developing a company. Levis shows how companies like Amazon and Google rose from nothing to enormous heights, while IBM, Kodak, and AOL plummeted from them; how Nokia bounced from near bankruptcy to global leadership; and it charts the incredible rise, fall, and rise again of Apple.
This is not a "how to succeed in business" textbook, but is far more interesting and more than accessible, even for those with no background in business or economics.

"Interesting Subject Poorly Written"
I was very disappointed with this audiobook. Being a geek and tech fan I thought it would be great but the combination of management jargon and comical and comedy accents for all the quotes made it painful to get through.
At times it felt like listening to a students essay on management. If that's your bag you may enjoy it but if your after an interesting story on the rise and fall of the dotcoms look elsewhere
