Incorrect Publisher's Summary
The publisher's summary mentions IBM and Thomas Watson. The audio book does not even mention them.
As for the companies covered, Apple, Microsoft and Netscape, the details provided or so sketchy that though they might interest someone who is totally new to the technology world, to a regular follower there is nothing new to take home.
