about

A great deal has been written about Steve Jobs and Apple. Not nearly as much has been produced about Bill Gates and Microsoft, especially in the ten-year period that Dave Jaworski was at Microsoft. Microsoft was the company that drove the hardest and built the fastest. He was there during this rapid rise to the top. Dave kept meticulous notes and took lots of photos and documented the risks taken, the dreams shared, the lessons learned, the hopes realized, and the mistakes made. Many of the issues at the time are similar to issues confronting leaders in business today. All can learn from Microsoft's past.

Dave also details several secrets-some only his family knows. Some of these secrets were known to only a handful of people within the company at a time when it went through its explosive growth period: like the secret recipe for Coca-Cola or Colonel Sanders' chicken recipe, these secrets were literally changing the competitive landscape in the technology industry and were rewriting the business rules of the day. Understanding these secrets and the thinking behind them can provide strategic insights and advantages to professionals and their businesses. Better still, they can help them define their own secrets to accelerate them past competitors and over hurdles to success.

Dave Jaworski has over thirty years of sales, technology, and executive management experience. Dave was the third employee at Microsoft Canada, and served as the national sales manager before being promoted to general manager of Western US Sales. There he led the team managing 80 percent of Microsoft's US business. Dave was promoted to...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very intetresting book Interested in learning how some of the bigger business leaders started, how they think, or how they treat their people? This book covers it off for you in regards to Jeff Bezos and the story of Amazon. From reading the book, it seems that Amazon has approved the book but still has some juicy details (if they are real) in them. For anyone in business, I would recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bezos is a Beast This book is a no holds barred look at just how incredibly driven Jeff Bezos is. He takes an aggressive head first approach to Amazon and if you can't keep up you are jettisoned by the way side. His work ethic is unmatched. This book details the explosive growth of one of the world's most interesting and growing companies... Maybe even the first to be valued at 1 trillion dollars?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relentless Drive and Passion This is an intriguing and informative read, not just about Amazon's inception and growth into the juggernaut that it is today, but of Bezos himself. There are many elements in the man's life that seem to parallel Steve Jobs - mostly, the drive to succeed and the relentlessness and passion for seeing a dream become a reality. This book provides both a humanity and an in-humanity to Amazon at the same time, but ultimately illustrates the rise of a company that has been at the forefront of pioneering changes to the publishing and book industry. Brad Stone does an excellent job of providing incredible insights and backgrounds and walks a fine balance between being praising and being critical. An impressive read and one I would highly recommend to anybody working within retail or the publishing industry.
