"For example, people have fought over whether they should use Linux or Microsoft operating systems or whether they should program in the Visual basic or C languages."

The title and cover got me excited ... so I flipped through this, ran across a couple sentences like the one above, just couldn't keep going. Maybe got through 5 pages, total.

High-level gibberish for non-technical folks running big companies. gluck if you're in that position and this book feels novel.

I had to quit the book after 20% of it ... but I should had quit it even earlier: it makes no sense to read obvious ideas about tech with no insight at all (but maybe the author did not even had an idea about what he was writing ...)

Easily skimmable and certain sections were quite valuable. The various chapters seemed to cover very unrelated topics. Those chapters which covered topics I was interested in were good; I skipped the irrelevant chapters.
