Before Microsoft became an alleged monopoly, it was a group of smart young people working very hard on revolutionary software. The members of this founding generation were bright and aggressive people thrown together in a company in which ideas and competitiveness trumped protocols and procedures. Tsang managed to interview many of the key early employees; most have since “retired” as “Microsoft millionaires.” These men and women opened up their life stories and shared a wealth of insights and anecdotes that help explain how Microsoft became what it is. Whether you love or hate Microsoft, this audiobook will hold your attention. Mary Woods’s singsong voice is not suited to the production, but the material wins over the presentation.
