  • "Really, really disappointing"

    Overall

    If you're interested in finding out about the history of an incredible lab, don't waste your time with this.

    The book is more about the author and how pleased with himself.

    It really is so disappointing.

    Narain Gehani tells the fascinating story of the transition Bell Labs is undergoing as it adapts to new business conditions. Bell Labs researchers, who once were free to focus on innovation, research excellence, and prizes, now have to worry about business relevance. The culture of lifetime employment is gone and the pendulum has swung from basic to applied research.

  • Linked: The New Science of Networks

    "Tediously labours the point"

    Overall

    The points made are interesting but the author makes them time and time again and labours the point too often.

    I don't know if he is trying to flesh out what should have been a briefer book or doesn't have confidence in his ability to explain the subject matter in a manner that the audience can understand.

    I ended up becoming frustrated and thinking 'I know, you've said so five times already' when listening to this audiobook and is the only one I?ve not listened to all the way though. I think an abridged version would have been better!

    There are far better science books out there about Emergence in my opinion - even though few are on audiobook yet.

    Conventional wisdom about the 1953 coup in Iran rests on the myth that the CIA toppled the country's democratically elected prime minister. In reality, the coup was primarily a domestic Iranian affair, and the CIA's impact was ultimately insignificant.
