Read full description of the books:
Are you waiting to gear head your career once you get the opportunity?
Then this book is for you. It talks about seizing the moment.
I loved the way this book describes people who love their work. These people live their work. Eat it, breathe it. There are so many people in this world who work for the sake of it. They won't ever make a book. But the Pepsi and Apple teams are way apart.
I read the book to draw inspiration for my own work. It was nothing short on the promise. I see this book as it states 'A journey of Adventure, Ideas'. I don't agree with 'the Future' part though. Don't get me wrong. Steve and the peers did see a future and eventually made it true. But this book is not about that. It is John Sculley's book. It ends at Ideas.
John is frank when he appreciates people who inspires him. He is sincere when is detests them. This sincerity makes the book enjoyable and eventually a tad too long on musings and their reinterpretations.
The best part of the book: It shares insights into the symptoms of success and failure, lessons and analysis. Coming from someone who was CEO to Apple for over 10 years, it sure is worth its salt. The book intends to share insights into management. These practical tips are driven home by the way they are backed with how they fit into the entire structure of an organization, what ticked and what didn't.
The not so good part: It is after all, not a management book. It is a person's personal story. It has true emotions. That, while making the book's content for credible, at times taking one's thought to- I wish I knew the other side of the story as well, to thinking how the one who has the last laugh is termed as the winner, to trapping you in the intimate fight between intellect and emotions, leaves the reader, wishing it would just end. Consequently, I thought the last 100 pages could be removed and the book will still be the same.
Guess I too am getting drowned in my emotions and this indicates, here, this review should end.
Read it to taste the truth of corporate and it's cost........
