Abstract:

In 1982, a little upstart company named Sun was making waves in the high-tech industry with its groundbreaking workstation technology. Though dismissed by early competitors as not worth losing sleep over, Sun Microsystems since become a formidable presence in the industry, making its own rules and taking no prisoners, and is currently poised to reach the highest point of its ascendancy: the challenge of Microsoft's dominance over the future of computing. This book examines how scrappy underdog Sun overcame its larger and supposedly tougher competitors, combining hard work, tenacity, and talented people to build a more innovative and flexible company. The driving force behind Sun's rise is Scott McNealy--brash, unconventional, ambitious--whose aggressive and inspirational leadership has turned into Sun into the multibillion-dollar success it is today.
