Publisher's Summary

The essential skill of creating and maintaining new businesses - the art of the entrepreneur - can be summed up in a single word: managing. In High Output Management, Andrew S. Grove, former chairman and CEO (and employee number three) of Intel, shares his perspective on how to build and run a company. Born of Grove’s experiences at one of America’s leading technology companies, this legendary management book is a Silicon Valley staple, equally appropriate for sales managers, accountants, consultants, and teachers, as well as CEOs and start-up founders. Grove covers techniques for creating highly productive teams, demonstrating methods of motivation that lead to peak performance - throughout, High Output Management is a practical handbook for navigating real-life business scenarios and a powerful management manifesto with the ability to revolutionize the way we work.

Best all-round management book I read

It's fast paced and packed with insights that are still very relevant and actionable. There's no fluff, this book respects the reader and provides non-stop barrage of information. I'm excited to try the applicable advise from the end of the book.

As to the audio, the sound recording is good and the narrator has a pleasant voice that doesn't distract from the message.

All nuts and bolts

This may very well be my most favorite business book ever. Solid advice for everything from the best way to do a review to how to handle interruptions. Will listen several additional times. Absolutely thrilled that this is now on audible.

Classic book finally reproduced in a new audiobook

Recent audiobook production of the latest edition of Andy Grove's classic, meaning that it includes Ben Horowitz's foreword from 2015. Much better than the original production that had been floating around.
Solid reading for business owners, managers, etc. and not only applicable for tech companies.

Management 401

I'm not a manager, but I'm going to become one soon, and this book seems like it's got a lot of really useful information, but since it's not 100% relevant to me right now, it's hard to appreciate it fully.

if you're not a manager, try reading Extreme Ownership or something, that'll suit you better.

High Output Management

This book was amazing! It had great metaphors and analogies that went along with real world examples of managing tips that you can use at your own organization - even in 2022. I will definitely be revisiting this book so I can drill the concepts into my head. FYI, the narrator sounds like a radio show host from the 1960's.

Dated with relevant bits

Once you get past the dated language (e.g. all examples of fictitious people are male), the concepts and principles have relevance.
