    1. I picked this book because it was referred by Ben Horowitz (bhorowitz/2011/04/15/peace). Other reason being the book's interesting title which somehow conveyed to me that it must be a book about how Andy Grove was paranoid (in good sense) enough to make Intel an Awesome company.But as soon as started the book I become disappointed because it's not the book I thought it to be. Its not about Andy Grove being tough CEO or his paranoid decisions. It's is just like any other common business book writ [...]

    2. Only The Paranoid SurviveKey Quotes:"The replacement of corporate heads is far more motivated by the need to bring in someone who is not invested in the past than to get somebody who is a better leader or better manager in other ways."---Andy Grove, Only the Paranoid Survive (p127)Strategic change doesn't just start at the top, it starts with your calendar. ---(p146)"Put all of your eggs in one basket, then WATCH THAT BASKET"--- Mark TwainAsk yourself:'Will going to this meeting teach me about t [...]

    3. Today Andy Grove died at the age of 79. His book "Only the Paranoid Survive" talks about his key business philosophy. One should always be on the lookout for new trends or products that might displace or destroy yours. Under him, Intel was famous for cannibilizing their older chips, their cash cows, with the new ones. The competition just couldn't follow their relentless pace. I recommend the book to everyone in management or business whether in high-tech or not.

    4. خیلی وقت بود می خواستم این کتاب رو بخونم ولی فرصت اش پیش نمی یومد، ولی حالا که خوندنش رو تموم کردم با خودم می گم ای کاش زودتر می خوندم این کتاب رو که نوشته اندرو گرو مدیرعامل و رئیس هیئت مدیره پیشین اینتل هست، پیتر دراکر هم درباره این کتاب گفته: «این اثر برجسته کتابی خطرناک می با [...]

    5. This book discusses some really important ideas, primarily the "10x forces" that fundamentally change businesses and the "strategic inflection points" during which an industry is transformed by these "10x forces" (yes, he quotes that term everywhere it appears in the book). Grove explores these ideas using his experience as CEO during Intel's switch from making memories to making microprocessors in the late 80's as the primary example, but he emphasizes that these ideas are not unique to the tec [...]

    6. I had heard so much about this book being a classic, and I finally read it.Whats lovely is that it was written in 1996, and he lays out the principles of how to prepare for, deal with and manage change - especially when it comes to a change in how the business worksWhen industries/ structures/ networks change - it can ruin organisations or catapult them to dominant positions. It is also a signal to either scale up in that direction or retreat completely out of the current one.It's also a brillia [...]

    7. 2.5/5 (I was thinking to give it 2.2. But since the book dates back at 1998 & I see some of Grove's prediction has come true by this time, I think 2.5 is enough)My favorite moment from the book is when Gordon Moore & Grove decides to get rid of the memory business at Intel in the face of an inflection point by Japanese manufacturers. This reminds me, most often we hold the key to put a stop to our misery but we barely notice that. I appreciate Grove's approach to introduce various inflec [...]

    8. Good book. This book was written in 1996, and like anything has started to show its age. The basic messages/ themes still ring true. Although it is funny to read about Apple and Steve Jobs and how they were basically regarded as being left for dead. Now of course, Jobs came back strong and have higher market capitalization than Microsoft. So, I guess the lesson is that this book is good, but you have to still take it with a grain of salt and put it in perspective.My favorite part was when he was [...]

    9. I understand why CEOs around Silicon Valley look to Andy Grove's books for inspiration. Written in 1996 (20 years ago!) his thesis still feels very relevant and I learned a great deal from his examples from running Intel that are helping me to be a more productive & thoughtful employee in small scrappy startups. I read High Output Management before, and had a harder time relating his examples to my work in small unstructured startups - but I was able to glide through this quickly.The big key [...]

    10. Heard about this book very long ago. I believe like it says - only the paranoid survive. And what's related to business, I'm probably paranoid. Wasn't, but learned."Possibility that what your business does can be done in a different way." is great thing. If you can't stop over-competitiveness created by over-population, then what you can do, adapt, find new ways.It's interesting to read about technology 20+ years ago: "What is internet anyway?"What is microprocessor anyway? Race with time withou [...]

    11. Эта книга от одного из отцов легендарной компании Intel будет очень полезна особенно предпринимателям в вопросах предупреждения кризиса их бизнеса. Зачастую кризис похож на водоворот, но о нём как правило стаёт известно, когда с него уже невозможно выбраться. Автор подскаже [...]

    12. A absolute must read for every serious entrepreneur. I wish to become as good leader and entrepreneur as he was. This book does not only touch a very interesting topic that mean life or death for enterprises, but adding the fact that the book was written in the nineties - it's very interesting to see a world class CEOs view on the potential changes Internet will bring - from our perspective in the year 2016.

    13. It is the best one book to decipher the history of Intel.  This is the autobiography of founder.This book's theme is twofold.One is the innovation of micro Professor.And one is a strategy to sell it.This book focuses on the latter.This is a great book to decipher the strategy.Of course Moore's Law in the semiconductor has also been described.

    14. Andy is a shrewd leader who took Intel company from a fail to become a success story all over the world. besides chronological events he shows how a company sooner or later will suffer in a turmoil and only the paranoid and surfing against the waves, inflection points, would help out.This book is a strategy-focused and would benefit any person with needed leadership skills.

    15. This book had some decent concepts. I thought the addition of a 6th (Complementary) force to the traditional Porter's Fiver Forces was very apt and insightful. The book is dated; however, so there is no need to read through fully cover to cover. I think the question, "Is the internet that big a deal? Or is it an overhyped fad?" has been fully put to bed

    16. I've written about it here: bmajewski.wordpress/2016/. Shortly speaking i liked it a lot. It's not as great as Grove's previous work - high output management.

    17. Surprisingly readable book about what it's like to be at a company at the moment when it has to either change the way it operates or go into a decline.That said, I wish I were not the kind of person who now reads business books for fun.

    18. A great read on one of the best companies built in the 20th century. Every person in technology should read this book and see how it is difficult to create great companies

    19. An excelent book! It helped me a lot in writing an essay about Intel Corporation and, to my surprise, give some practical advice for future career. This book was better that I'd expected!

    20. Rather talking about a million things in one way, Grove talks about one thing in a million ways. How can an organisation, a leader, a middle management guy contribute and realign themselves to a fast changing business landscape with a "10X" Force from among those of Porter's Forces.Arguably, what could have made this visionary was if he had gone even beyond the tech industry and proved his point from other industries as well. But even so, a fun read for anyone specially someone interested in tec [...]

    21. An interesting "blend" between "the innovators's dilemma" (85%) and "thinking fast and slow" (15%). The ideas are by no means groundbreaking, but you need to understand the period of time when this was written.It's also not clear how much of the actions were a result of premeditated thoughts and how much were just struggling to survive (ie we did this to test a hypotension vs we did this because everything was going to shit).

    22. A mentor from the graveAs great of a leader as Andy was, I feel his greatest contribution is his generous, wise and down to earth teachings. This book along with high output management should be required reading for all leaders and aspirational leaders regardless of field or circumstance. Thank you Andy.

    23. Honestly a bit disappointed with this book. Andy Grove shares his highs and lows at the helm of Intel, explaining the concept of strategic inflection point, a scenario where companies experience industry-wide upheavals. Majority of the book deals with ways to identify inflection points from false alarms, findings ways to wade through uncertainty without incurring significant financial damage.

    24. A classic business book covering the basics of management. What was interesting was hearing his predictions and talking about the Internet/ World Wide Web (who even says this anymore) when writing it in 1996. I feel we are at similar crossroads today, with AI and ML and big data. It would be interesting to see which large corporations do indeed ride the wave and who fail to catch it.

    25. Pretty good. Good ROI since there’s a lot of good information packed into a small number of pages. Its dated-ness is actually a plus here as we can look back and evaluate how good Grove’s analysis was. Good extensions of a typical 5 Forces framework. Light amounts of corporate whitewash. Worth reading.

    26. It's weird reading a business book written 20 years ago that is still relevant, yet feels incredibly dated.Written at the dawn of the Internet age as we know it, Andy Grove - former CEO of Intel - identifies some brilliant business lessons that anyone can benefit from, but the subject matter of microprocessors feels hugely outdated. Fascinating reading all the same.

    27. fascinating look at the world of tech in 1996. lots of great advice that is still relevant today along with interesting historical anecdotes about Apple's misstep by not going to a horizontal business model, and a great explanation on how the Internet works and how effective electronic mail can be to communicate with your company. A worthwhile quick read.

    28. The books introduces an amazing concept of Strategic Inflation points and supports it with various examples regarding it's cause and how to go about it. It is a very good book for senior managers and a strategic inflation itself for people who are young in their careers.

    29. This book started off a little slow, but I enjoyed it more and more as Grove continued incorporating real examples from Intel itself. The lessons he was trying to get across were really supported by these examples, and I loved the insight into how the company solved it's make or break scenarios.

    30. Interesting book from the point of view of Andrew Grove about the strategic shift in Intel from memories to microprocessors. Andrew Grove takes the Intel case as a starting point and makes a compelling general approach to inflection points in business and in one's professional life.
