Abstract:

Annotation Larry Ellison is one of the most successful and controversial characters in today's business world. With fierce drive and ambition, Ellison transformed Oracle from a struggling vendor of database software into the second-largest software company in the world, after Microsoft. And now that Bill Gates has stepped down from the CEO role at Microsoft, Ellison is the last remaining entrepreneurial pioneer still in day-to-day command of a major high-tech company. Yet, as revealed here by former Oracle executives (including major software industry players like Ray Lane and Tom Siebel), Ellison's mania for absolute control and his inability to coexist with the very lieutenants who bring much-needed stability to the company have brought Oracle to the brink of collapse before, and may well do it again: Everyone Else Must Fail--a sentiment that Ellison appropriated from Genghis Khan--tells the candid story of Ellison and Oracle, giving credit to Ellison's brilliance and devotion while sounding a warning about an ingenious man's tendency to be his own company's worst enemy.
