Great Book if you're curious about working for MicroSoft,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Barbarians Led by Bill Gates, Engl. ed. (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I think this book gives a good idea to the reader of what it was like, and still is like, to work at Microsoft. I agree with most of these other reviews, that a large corporation is fumbling around, it is mortal and that the story (as with any story) is told from a certain persons point of view. I don't agree the person who wrote it was a failure or a coward (as stated in another readers review). I believe this person is intelligent and was not appreciated by management in HIS eyes. How can he be wrong? We all have our own opinions and personalities, and if you don't like someones opinion or personality, it doesn't make them "wrong" or a "coward". (In my opinion).
I could relate with the problems and I understood the cause and the effect as they were well explained in the book.
I found this book hard to put down and enjoyed it immensely..Infact, it made me interested in learning more about Microsoft and other peoples stories that have been written. I went out and bought several more books on Microsoft, including two it mentions in the book, Hard Drive and another called Start-Up (the competition on Pen Computing that got squashed).
This way I can read as many sides of the story as possible and come up with my own opinion.
