Honestly, I just didn’t get it. This book was described in near-mythical terms, but it seemed tedious to me. Maybe I’m just not used to hardware design, or I’m not an engineer anymore – I don’t know what, but the over-arching point of this was lost. There was some philosophy toward the end of engineers doing things just to do them, and sales people doing things for money, but maybe I misinterpreted.

Very disappointed. I was expecting something amazing.
