Let me start with the bad - as with most history books this one got a couple facts wrong. It attributes to BlackBerry ideas and innovations that already existed in the market. However, aside from those few details, this is an accurate and very well written book.
I was at the heart of the smartphone industry from 2001 to 2009. I studied BlackBerry as we competed against them. This book captures its essence, its strategy and provides great lessons on why companies grow and fall - even if not always explicitly.
This is a book I recommend to anyone interested in business, technology or strategy. What is even more interesting is that the story keeps going. BlackBerry has a new CEO and is executing on its cross-device management software strategy, as it just bought Goo Technology yesterday.

Informative story that helps to understand the history of smartphones. Also very well read. The narrator has a clear and pleasant voice.
