Thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Shows how being conservative and working in silos harms even the biggest of the companies. Not for the comparison, but at least to know the work culture differences between the two electronics giants of far east. They way of thinking, their take on future. It's a fact that no one can beat Sony in Analogue technologies (see the history), but then no one can beat Samsung in Digital technologies, not even Sony. Makes you wonder why execs at Sony were so laid back whereas those an Samsung with humble beginnings, drove the market in their favour and eventually became the masters of the digital world in such a short span of time. Must read.

I enjoyed this book because I enjoy learning about how large companies operate but I don't think that this book will interest the majority of business book readers (for example the kind of people who read the biographies of entrepreneurs).

He obviously knows these companies well as he goes into detail about the two companies structure and work ethic and how these affect performance.

Even though this book is quite interesting and isn't a text book but it's probably produced for business students.

The book covers the subject very well, is easy to understand the content and has graphics that help to understand the evolution of companies in time.

Great little read, although i felt that it lost its flow in some parts. Overall a good book and insightful.
