I work in the industry so I found the book interesting. Other than size, you could substitute IBM for any number of the other services and technology companies that area making short sighted decisions and are losing their identity in the quest for ever cheaper labor.
A couple of critiques on the book itself. The author is a blogger, so the book read, and probably is, a compilation of his blogs. That makes it feel a bit scattered. Also, the book could have really been a pamphlet because so much information is repeated, and the last half of the book is just comments from readers of his blog. The section that bothered me the most was his "what IBM needs to do" chapter. I appreciate he has suggestions, but there is nothing that I see in his background that would suggest he has the experience or qualifications to tell someone how to run a company.
