    1. I got this book as a Christmas gift when the secret Santa event was organized in my last company. I was so happy that i got a "book" (probably the happiest person on the floor) and now after reading it i am happier that i got "this book". I am almost sure that i myself would not have picked up this book, not that i only read fiction but the "How to ' stuff generally does not appeal me and yes this book is not those usual management lessons types.Thanks to my secret Santa for the book. The book i [...]

    2. This book should become a must read for HR Professionals and also for anyone participating on hiring interview loops. Gives many tips about what to know about job candidates and also a fundamental part: how to nurture and keep creative and A talent in your company.

    3. Good book. Worth a read. However, at times the author kept mentioning how he guided Steve Jobs or how Steve Jobs always came to him for advice, and to me it was a bit annoying as if he tries to showoff how he taught The man that co-created Apple.Another thing I usually dislike in any book or topic is when the author takes the side of one idea a little too much. It can get biased at times.But overall worth a read and anyone including those who care about work culture and recruitment would find so [...]

    4. Suka banget buku ini karena tulisannya pendek-pendek. Haha. Buku ini berguna banget buat para manager atau business owner yang bergerak di bidang kreatif. Bang Nolan ngasih tau gimana cara bikin suasana kerja yang kondusif buat para kreatif, gimana cara ngomong sama tim kreatif, gimana cara mengeluarkan potensi terbaik dari seorang staff creative. Karena seumur hidup saya hampir selalu bekerja di industri kreatif (alhamdulillah) maka berasa connect banget sama buku ini. Terlebih yang pas bagian [...]

What separates a handful of the numerous books that attempt to metaphorically map the DNA of [...]

    6. When Bushnell says "talent" in the title, he means "creatives", as he repeats quite often throughout the book. This is a book of ideas about how Bushnell and other, typically Silicon Valley types find and hire creative people. I found a number of ideas presented, most very interesting. There was some repetition. What I was looking for but didn't find is that Jobs is mentioned in a couple of places but I was expecting more on Bushnell's relationship with him, or his observations. There are a few. [...]

    7. this book had a lot of interesting thoughts about how to be that next greatest creative person. I would want to work at a company like google or apple with all those creative ideas flying about. I find it interesting that the author advocated putting bed or sleeping compartments in the office to refreshminds. how does this same idea work, say for example as a night staff at a hospital. and what about those friday night pizza/beer parties on the loading dock. would I ever see non alcoholic bevera [...]

    8. I agree with the proposition of integral circumstantial force, but really, is creativity going to stop the flow of ketchup onto my plate of fortitude and dalliance? I don't think so. Steve Jobs was a frequent shopper at Bartlett's Finky Dink Shop (and Crusty Emporium) so he knew, he KNEW DAMMIT! But what about the rest of you? What about little Susie on the corner of Elk and Schmelk? Will she know? Will she ever feel the lime lighting her way towards destiny?That's what I'm worried about. And yo [...]

    10. It is awesome. Nolan has explained very nicely about the key-points to be taken care while searching for employees who can play the major roles in running business by entrepreneurs. Reading just once gives a high-view, by keep on reading again and again you can become another Nolan. The olden days are gone where people are commited to work.

    11. Quick read. Aimed more at business owners and managers than at folks like me. Steve Jobs was lucky to find this guy as a mentor. If not I might not be typing this review on a hand held computer. Also I am not giving this book to my children. I do not want them showing up dirty to their job interviews and telling the interviewers how to do their jobs.

    12. If you're trying to hire and retain creatives, some of this counter-intuitive advice might be useful and help you relax your starched white collar. Nolan Bushnell is legendary and his track record speaks for itself. Though I think many companies would find his prescriptions tough to follow, they can at least buy the book and imagine being so creative themselves.

    13. I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if it was a straight bio of Nolan Bushnell, who is pretty wacky and awesome and successful in his own right. One of those successes, though, was discovering and first hiring Jobs, and this book ties the two together through characteristics of great leaders. It's a pretty tenuous link, and the book is a smidge repetitive, but a good read nonetheless.

    14. This is not just a book about creativity, or hiring creatives, but about how to lead effectively. It's by Nolan Bushnell, Atari founder, who has probably been through more success and failure than most leaders. He talks about risk, leadership and innovation in a way that is accessible, simple but not trivial.

    15. Some quirky tips mixed with an appealing presentation and format. Sounds exactly like the sort of book that recalls the founder of the Apple company, Steve Jobs. I purchased this book to get a few tips on how to enhance the role for a colleague. That particular challenge continues bit this book was not without it's' merits.

    16. Mr.Nolan is a genius.His message is simple, and available to anyone who will take the time to listen and absorb. Quite simply it is a spirited and insightful road map for anyone trying to navigate the of work -- ceived the book for free through First Reads.

    17. A book which is a simple easy to read, given many great ideas on finding and recruiting talents, especially creative talent.If you're an HR personal, this is definitely one of the books you should have on your bookshelf.

    18. I read this book because Nolan Bushnell is probably my favorite CEO/Executive of all time, and a hero of mine. I recommend this book who is interested in any of his companies, and/or wants to have a creative, innovative environment in their workplace.

    19. interview 03.04.2013 on bbc world news - pick bullied people, those who don't do well in interviews, etc.

    20. Clever, fun advice for creative entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs in creative industries. Lots of great ideas. Pithy and charming.

    21. I once met Nolan Bushnell a few years ago and although I wasn't prepared to invest in the company he was working with, I did want to spend a week asking him questions. This is almost as good!

    22. Quick read. Insights into both Nolan Bushnell and Steve Jobs. All interesting but nothing too deep.

    23. This book was fascinating about how to hire and work with creative people. I just didn't have time to finish it this round.

    24. Bushnell gives insight into his business practices with an illustrious list of what he refers to as "Pongs".

    25. Short & simple. The messages are clear. That's all you need for this kind of book. Therefore, it deserves 5 stars.

    26. Great ideas on how to attract and keep creative people on your team. Warning, some ideas are a little out there. We probably can't have Friday keg parties at work!
