Publisher's Summary

The essential skill of creating and maintaining new businesses - the art of the entrepreneur - can be summed up in a single word: managing. In High Output Management, Andrew S. Grove, former chairman and CEO (and employee number three) of Intel, shares his perspective on how to build and run a company. Born of Grove’s experiences at one of America’s leading technology companies, this legendary management book is a Silicon Valley staple, equally appropriate for sales managers, accountants, consultants, and teachers, as well as CEOs and start-up founders. Grove covers techniques for creating highly productive teams, demonstrating methods of motivation that lead to peak performance - throughout, High Output Management is a practical handbook for navigating real-life business scenarios and a powerful management manifesto with the ability to revolutionize the way we work. 

* This audiobook edition includes a downloadable PDF of selected content from the book.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

All nuts and bolts

This may very well be my most favorite business book ever. Solid advice for everything from the best way to do a review to how to handle interruptions. Will listen several additional times. Absolutely thrilled that this is now on audible.

Classic book finally reproduced in a new audiobook

Recent audiobook production of the latest edition of Andy Grove's classic, meaning that it includes Ben Horowitz's foreword from 2015. Much better than the original production that had been floating around.
Solid reading for business owners, managers, etc. and not only applicable for tech companies.

Dated with relevant bits

Once you get past the dated language (e.g. all examples of fictitious people are male), the concepts and principles have relevance.
