Narain Gehani tells the fascinating story of the transition Bell Labs is undergoing as it adapts to new business conditions.

This book is like listening to paint dry. Like so many other reviewers I expected something completely different. After about 2 hours I gave up; as dull as it is to listen to I can't imagine someone reading the written version.
