A New York Times Bestseller In 1990, IBM had its most profitable year ever. By 1993, the company was on its way to extinction, a victim of its lumbering size, an insular corporate culture, and the PC era it had helped invent. Then Lou Gerstner was brought in. Now he offers a blow-by-blow account of IBM's competitive and cultural transformation -- the first-hand story of an extraordinary turnaround.
