    The Rise & Demise of BlackBerry

    An in depth account of the humble beginnings to the success and eventual decline of BlackBerry and its two co-founders Jim Basillie and Mike Lazaridis whose contrasting styles enabled a Canadian tech firm to be globally recognised and a brand name that was worth billions of dollars at its peak. As with the stories of many other tech firms, what is successful today can easily descend into decline the next moment with intense competition and ever rising wars on innovation and patents etc. This book delves into the intense competition posed by Apple and Samsung in the smartphone era and also Google Android in the software arena that eventually results in the co-founders stepping down as they face more disagreements and conflicts in the future direction of the company.

    20-billion dollar company to zero

    The rise and fall of BlackBerry is told in an amazing, straightforward way in this book. I would just say that Thorsten Heins' and John Chen's times deserved some more pages. To me, the book is much more than the story of BlackBerry. It is a great management book for any type of employee (not just managers) at any level who are looking for a book to learn about running a business: creating a market from absolute zero, different personalities acting as one, market disruption, management mistakes etc.
