Software | Book by Matthew Symonds, Larry Ellison | Official Publisher
Larry Ellison is one of the most frank, committed and courageous managers in the poker world. He co-founded and managed Oracle, which is the number one enterprise solutions provider. Matthew Symonds gives the reader an explicit and personal look at Oracle and the man who made it and leads it.
Not only does he tell the tale of Oracle's often rough road to industrial domination, he also explores the personal side of Ellison's work. The unrestricted inside approach Ellison grants herself catches Symonds' intense and, some might say, carelessness that has made Ellison a myth. Featuring a new and extended pocket-book issue essays the history behind Oracle's eponymous battle for power over PeopleSoft, Software is the most comprehensive portrayal of the man and his realm - a truly original and compelling report on the way the computer business really works and an exceptional one.

It is BusinessWeek Symphonds that allows the reader into the often tumultuous private lives of 59-year-old Ellison...[and] offers a marvellous picture of an Ellison that is far from being all-business.
