Father, Son & Co.
IN THIS SUMMARY
Father, Son & Co avoids the pitfalls of which many chronologies fall prey: excessive use of disruptive flashbacks and flash-forwards, an overabundance of characters who add nothing but unnecessary confusion to the story, self-serving editorializing, and the inclusion of episodes without proper transition and/or rationale. Watson’s intent is to chronicle, in his own voice, IBM’s history and the father and son relationship inextricably entwined with that history. This he does, with uncharacteristic eloquence and simplicity.
