Great book of one of the greatest innovation move in the computer world. Great to read about the process that lead to the success and failure and how sometimes it can be difficult to get different people with different educational and cultural background to think alike and work together and succeed.

I'm obviously not the target demographic for this book. I was interested in the evolution of the Thinkpad line, not a history of what IBM executives were involved with it. There were a few pictures of landmark Thinkpad machines, but a pictures of every executive ever involved.

That may be interesting to some people, but not for me.
