The book is a mixture of advises, author's contemplation of his rich experience in politics and real-life anecdotes like the one about how Louis Armstrong smuggled in weed while being in the role of Goodwill Ambassador smiley

The books is not bad. Some advices are trivial, like "have your meetings planned in advance", and some I found quite novel and useful to me.

I enjoyed Stone's honesty and directness. I think this book could benefit from adding pictures of the garments described by the author.

The guy will definitely teach you the high style. I like such bright individuals who have character. I also found some practical advises in the book including how to properly clean a suit (not dry cleaning!).

Regarding the example from the book of GE moving their HQ from suburbs to downtown Boston to encourage the innovation drive, to me that wasn't necessarily advantageous. Transportation is more challenging in and to the city center, parking more expensive and overall dynamics more exhaustive with crowds moving around.

Here is an article supporting the book author's critique of the open space concept of office layout. I agree that open space doesn't improve (and rather deteriorates) office communications, it creates a highly distracting environment and people tend to work from home more:

I found this book being one of the best narratives about the realities of life in Silicon Valley. The author was pissed off by missing a chance to become a billionaire - as per his own revelations, and he channeled his frustrations quite effectively into writing of this book. wink He is mostly critical in his writing but also reasonable and entertaining.
