MixedLibrary JournalIn terms of biography, there isn’t much new here, especially compared to Ken Abraham and Tracey Stewart’s Payne Stewart: The Authorized Biography. What differentiates this work from others are Robbins’s descriptions of how Stewart straddled two different eras in golf ... Only worthwhile for those who haven’t read the earlier volume by Abraham and Stewart.
PositiveLibrary JournalWhat makes this story particularly appealing is that it bridges the brick and mortar enterprise with ecommerce. Similar to Howard Jonas’s On a Roll and Phil Knight’s Shoe Dog, Randolph’s work delves into the workings of a business, from startup to maturity. The author is particularly adept at describing how the \'next big thing\' gets started in the milieu of Silicon Valley, sprinkling throughout the text object lessons on leadership, talent, excellence, and working through problems. Of note are details of how Netflix grew organically ... A worthwhile personal account and career guide for budding entrepreneurs.
