    Useful scan of history of consumer electronics and computer industries. Author has undoubtedly done a lot of legwork and research. Not super updated as it covers only the period leading up to 1996,, but one can gather insights from the historical development of the US, European and Japanese electronics industries and see some parallels to today's tech industries. However, the writing was bogged down by a barrage of facts and trivia, and the author tends to repeat himself.

Not super updated as it covers only the period leading up to 1996,, but one can gather insights from the historical development of the US, European and Japanese electronics industries and see some parallels to today's tech industries. However, the writing was bogged down by a barrage of facts and trivia, and the author tends to repeat himself. One has to wade through/skip entire passages of mind-numbing statistics and minutiae to get to the key takeaways. He really spends too many words delivering the same simple messages: one has to punch through many paragraphs of minutiae to learn that the author really wants the reader to understand that one has to DEVELOP AN INTEGRATED LEARNING BASE; THOU SHALT NOT COMPETE AND GROW BY UNDERTAKING POINTLESS MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS. If the writing was sharpened to be more succinct, the book would have been a shorter, more enjoyable and insightful read.
