Play Nice But Win book summary

On January 3, 2006 Michael Dell Michael’s first book, Direct from Dell, was published which is a great story of the nuts and bolts of Dell. But “Play Nice But Win” is much more inside of his head and at times emotional about his journey with Dell Technologies.

Awaited college dropout Michael Dell hid signs of his starter PC business in the bathroom of his University of Texas dorm room in 1984. Almost 30 years later, at the peak of his success as founder and leader of Dell Technologies, he found himself entangled in a battle for his company's survival. What will be the next planning to come out from it- could he ensure its legacy or destroy it completely? 

Play Nice But Win is an appealing story of the three battles executed for Dell Technologies: 1) to launch it, 2) to keep it, and 3) to transform it. In this book Dell reveals the highs and lows of the company's transformation among a fast changing industry besides his own growth of maturation as a CEO when it was needed. The important thing is, he calls back the mentors who taught him how to turn his passion into a business; the competitors who became friends, opponents, or both; and the enemies who were looking for weakness. What comes out is the long-term vision boosting his success: that sooner or later technology is about people and their prospects. 

Play Nice But Win is a survival story and an honest portrait of a leader proving that while anyone with technological perception and entrepreneurial passion might build something great--it makes a leader possible to build something powerful and supreme.
