Direct from Dell - Book review

Direct from Dell is a wonderful book for many reasons. First, its a business book devoid of all business jargins and told in a direct,simple style . Second, Michael Dell's lays out the mantras that has made Dell such a successful company today with a cogent flow and in-depth analysis. He is candid to admit the mistakes they made early and stresses its three golden rules -- Sell Direct, Disdain inventory and always focus on the customer.

The early part of the book describing Dell's childhood and his dorm days at Austin and his eventual drop-out from the college reveal the personal side in an otherwise professional business book. If you want to pick-up a non-nonsense good business book, then look no beyond this one. Its direct from Dell's heart and definitely focussed on the customer (Like his business !).
