The HP Way: How Bill Hewlett and I Built Our Company (O/T)


Apologies for a question that's probably already been discussed and that I missed, but is 'The HP Way: How Bill Hewlett and I Built Our Company' by David Packard a good read? Any other recommendations (I've nearly finished working through all the space program books that were recommended in a posting here a couple of years ago.)

If so I shall add it to my next purchase of books.

Best wishes

Quite frankly, I did not find the book particularly enlightening. I picked up a copy cheap from a library used-book clearance sale. The HP-35 is briefly mentioned, but not the HP-41C or any other of the calculator line in existence at the time.

There are a few "nuggets" here and there, but I found the book rather superficial.

Thanks for the information, think I will give it a miss. When I had a look on Amazon there was a review which said it was very dry.
