    Dell Rules!

    For a kid who enjoyed taking apart computers, Michael Dell has come a long way. In DIRECT FROM DELL he enthusiastically describes the development of his phenomenally successful business, Dell Computer Company. The book is a fascinating read for people who enjoy learning about 'hypergrowth companies' and the personal computer industry. It's also interesting simply as an account of a businessman who possesses the exceptional ability to deal with rapidfire changes in technology and to build an organization whose employees thrive on change. Dell provides examples and advice for start-up business owners on ways to handle change and the importance of constant communication with employees, customers, and suppliers. He offers some innovative ideas for encouraging employees to think outside the box and for suppliers to work as partners with the company for everyone's benefit. Congratulations, Michael Dell, on your company's amazing success and your willingness to listen to the customers' needs over everything else.
