I really like this book. It's presented some very successful companies and linked them into strategies that Steve Jobs has used at Apple. It's filled me with inspiration and helped me to focus on an idea, spurring my imagination.
Not good, not bad:
I think the author has latched on to a very successful businessman in order to sell a book with rehashed ideas on how to be a successful entrepreneur/innovator/visionary.
I've read it all before. That said, I like how this is written. I like the analogies and I like the end of chapter points to practice/remember. Every now and again it will try and steer itself back to something Steve Jobs did - sort of blatant.
It'd be a good book on it's own without the book title but I probably wouldn't have bought it if it hadn't. Gotta love irony.
When all's said and done, I think this has helped me to focus on something I have had in my mind for a number of years.
My point is, the value of Gallo's book is not based on any head-snapping revelations it provides; rather, on the analysis he offers of a truly unique person who co-founded a truly unique organization, and who then established and nourished a culture within which innovative thinking continues to produce, in Jobs's familiar words, "insanely great ideas." Ironically, it is possible but unlikely that Jobs and Apple would have succeeded to the extent they later did were it not for the "insanely great ideas" that he and Steve Wozniak encountered during a visit to Xerox PARC in 1979. Long ago, Thomas Edison observed, "Vision without execution is hallucination." An "insanely great" idea will not achieve "insanely great" breakthrough success without "insanely great" execution.
I also presume to assert that, with all due respect to Jobs, credit for the extraordinary success that Apple has achieved thus far must be shared by hundreds (if not thousands) of people who have been or are now centrally involved at every management level and in all areas of operations.Read more ›
This book, and the philosophies of Steve Jobs have transformed my outlook on business. It is fun. It can be laid back and yet thrust forward at the same time, and above all, it's easy! If you have a well thought out vision, and a product/service that performs a purpose, then people want it from you whether they know it yet or not, and this book will highlight that perfectly. A must for any business minded person.
