Only the Paranoid Survive
How to Exploit the Crisis Points That Challenge Every Company
Andrew S. Grove - 1998-04-06 (first published in 1988)
Goodreads Rating
Leadership, strategy, and adaptation are at the forefront of this book by a former CEO of the world's largest chip maker. Grove shares his philosophy on how to navigate difficult moments of change, which he calls Strategic Inflection Points. These moments can make or break a company, but Grove shows how they can be opportunities to come out stronger. This classic guide to leadership and management includes real-life examples of Grove's successes and failures, including how he handled the Pentium flaw that threatened Intel's reputation. The new chapter in the Currency Paperback edition also offers advice on predicting and benefiting from Strategic Inflection Points in one's own career.
Anne Wojcicki
When I graduated from college, my sister was working at Intel, and I remember asking her about the culture. She was like, "Anne, I'm going to give you this book called Only the Paranoid Survive." It resonated with me--that mentality of, you never sit back and think, "I'm so great." The reality is, there's a lot of luck in everyone's success. You can get taken down at any time, and great ideas can come from anywhere.      source
