Apple Inc. (Corporations That Changed the World)
Author: Jason D. O'Grady | Publisher: Greenwood Press
Two guys named Steve, working in a garage, created a prototype computer designed to be different in a way no one thought possible: It would be easy to use. Those two Steves, one now a billionaire and still at the head of Apple, not only succeeded with that product, but they also broke ground in the business world in ways few thought possible: They proved you could not only have fun at work, but pursuing a capitalist dream could be hip. How did Apple do it? How did it go from making computers that made a difference but not much of a dent in the

Big Shots: 10 Secrets of the World's Greatest Turnaround King - Business the Jack Welch Way (Big Shots Series)
Author: Stuart Crainer | Publisher: Capstone
Stuart Crainer should be commended on his abilities in conducting secondary research studies. This book is full of references to recent books on management, leadership, and strategy by celebrated business Gurus; but then, how else would Mr Crainer have written this book without direct access to Jack Welch? Once one has accepted its second-hand nature, the unique business gems--true secrets--that do not apply to other known business leaders are thin on the ground. This reviewer found three, of which two are attributable to Jack Welch and t

Bloomberg by Bloomberg
Author: Michael Bloomberg | Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Bloomberg by Bloomberg I enjoyed reading this book because of the way in which Michael Bloomberg describes the role that skill, personality, contacts and luck played in building his business. It was interesting to note how he does not seem all that concerned with what his competitors are doing. He focuses on what his customers want.
