Summary, etc.:
Tony Fadell led the teams that created the iPod, iPhone and Nest Learning Thermostat and learned enough in thirty plus years in Silicon Valley about leadership, design, startups, Apple, Google, decision-making, mentorship, devastating failure and unbelievable success to fill an encyclopedia. So that's what this book is. An advice encyclopedia. A mentor in a box. Tony uses examples that are instantly captivating, like the process of building the very first iPod and iPhone. Every chapter is designed to help readers with a problem they're facing right now, how to get funding for their startup, whether to quit their job or not, or just how to deal with the jerk in the next cubicle.
