The Innovators by Walter Isaacson

Over the weekend, I finished reading the book "The Innovators" by Walter Isaacson. I thought it was an informative and inspiring read. 

The book starts with the story of Ada, Countess of Lovelace and ends with the author's reflections on how her vision has become reality some 150 years later.

Google and Berkshire Hathaway in the news

  2. Berkshire Hathaway has acquired Precision, a company that makes aircraft parts for $32.3 billion.
I have long admired both companies as they have very clear game plans which they execute almost flawlessly.
