Liberty Posted June 21, 2014 Share Posted June 21, 2014 [amazonsearch]Creativity, Inc.[/amazonsearch] This might not seem like a business book at first, but it is one of the best kind. Ed Catmull is an extremely smart and introspective manager and engineer (he invented texture-mapping!) who tells us how he very deliberately built an excellent business (Pixar, for those who don't know who Catmull is). No management consultant platitudes here. It's very interesting that he focuses mostly on his mistakes and what went wrong rather than only talk about the glory. There's also some interesting backstory on Steve Jobs' strengths and weaknesses (he was Pixar's largest shareholder, though not super involved in the day-to-day, mostly big strategic decisions). I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I've read 200 pages since last night and that's quite enough to make me recommend the book. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
