Description

Journalist Leander Kahney reveals how CEO Tim Cook has led Apple to astronomical success after the death of Steve Jobs in 2011.

The death of Steve Jobs left a gaping void at one of the most innovative companies of all time. Jobs wasn't merely Apple's iconic founder and CEO; he was the living embodiment of a global megabrand. It was hard to imagine that anyone could fill his shoes - especially not Tim Cook, the intensely private executive who many thought of as Apple's "operations drone".

But seven years later, as journalist Leander Kahney reveals in this definitive audiobook, things at Apple couldn't be better. Its stock has nearly tripled, making it the world's first trillion-dollar company. Under Cook's principled leadership, Apple is pushing hard into renewable energy, labor- and environmentally friendly supply chains, user privacy, and highly recyclable products. From the massive growth of the iPhone to lesser-known victories like the Apple Watch, Cook is leading Apple to a new era of success.

Drawing on access with several Apple insiders, Kahney tells the inspiring story of how one man attempted to replace someone irreplaceable and - through strong, humane leadership, supply-chain savvy, and a commitment to his values - succeeded more than anyone had thought possible.

Could not get past the narration

I eagerly anticipated the 16th to arrive. I was very excited to listen to this book. But I could not get past the narration. I didn't feel the author's accent was aligned with the story at all and always kept me "out of the book". I tried going back to this book a number of times before ultimately asking for a refund. Might be a book I have to read.

Tim Cook's personal advertisement!

This book is just about how great Tim Cook has been and how he has never made a single mistake in his entire life. A genius and a fabulous person who cares about everyone and everything and never does wrong. Anything that has happened to Apple was either other Apple executives' faults or because Steve Job's didn't give a damn about anything and anyone.

There has not been a single line about how he achieved what he did. All and all about his greatness!

One of the most ridiculous books that I have ever read/listened. Complete waste of time!!!

More like a PR piece

It’s more like a PR piece talking about achievements of Tim Cook after talking over as CEO.

The things we should be doing at Apple are ...

"The things we should be doing at Apple are things that others can’t."
"If you want me to only do things for ROI reasons then you should get out of this stock."
"I don’t think business should only deal with commercial things. Business, to me, is nothing more than a collection of people. If people have values, then companies should."

Really?

Blabbering too much about Tim Cook despite his failure in project Titan and failure to show that Apple can make another great product? Product design wise has shown a big set back in iphone 11 though the software and little things are getting better

Great Autobiography

I purchased this book for my 10 year old son to read for a book report on a famous person from Alabama. A lot of the content covered in this book was over his head, however, I appreciated how detailed this book was. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is fascinated with Apple products and how Tim Cook's rise to CEO came about.

Good read

Easy and good read. The narrative flows nicely and is quite informative. While it feels at times too much of a PR story for Tim Cook, I do believe that Tim Cook deserves a lot of credit for Apple’s success. Overall, good book and worth the read.

Posh Pastiche

Very average. PR-stunt gloryfying and warming up an accountant who become CEO. Narrated by Johny-Ive-wannabe.

Publicly available information condensed in a book.

I was under the impression that this was a biography along the lines of the kind Walter Isaacson did for Steve Jobs, but in reality this is no more than an aggregation of information that is already available publicly. Seems to have had 0 input from Tim Cook himself.

No fault of the author, of course. I should e read into what this book was before preordering.
