No one, including Microsoft's own leadership, can predict what's next for Microsoft. But lots of smart folks, inside & outside the company, have some pretty educated guesses. This book provides a quick look at Microsoft's past, & then it focuses on the people, products, & strategies that will define the next chapter.

In someways this book is already outdated, but it was a good read. The book does cover the people at MS and gives a brief bio of a lot of them. My only problem is the book left me feeling kind of empty, nothing new, no bold predictions.

Not as relevant now (in 2011) as it was when it came out. When I read it, it helped me understand better the individuals and the clan politics that shaped a lot of the products and decisions made by the company over the years.

Some interesting history and insights, but the book's mostly dated now.
