Summary

Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman is one of the tech world's most accomplished executives in enterprise growth, having led Snowflake to the largest software IPO ever after leading Data Domain and ServiceNow to exponential growth and the public market before that. In Amp It Up, he shares his leadership approach for the first time.

Amp It Up delivers an authoritative look at what it takes to transform an organization for maximum growth and scale. Slootman shows that most leaders have significant room to improve their organization's performance without making expensive changes to their talent, structure, or fundamental business model - and they don't need to bring in an army of consultants to do it. What they do need is to align people around what matters and execute with urgency and intensity every day.

Leading for unprecedented growth means declaring war on mediocrity, breaking the status quo, and making conflicted choices daily, all with a relentless focus on the mission. Amp It Up provides the first principles to guide that change, and the tactical advice for organizing a company around them. Perfect for executives, entrepreneurs, founders, managers, and leaders of all kinds, Amp It Up is a must-have resource for anyone who seeks to unleash the growth potential of a company and scale it to heights they never thought possible.

Poorly narrated. Boring

This book could be called ‘how to make business sound boring’

Heaps of theoretical waffle. Hardly ever linking theory to real life experiences.

The computer style narration kills me.

Small parts were ok but overall, a boring book.

Like listening to a CV

Mediocre content, poorly narrated. Felt like I was listening to a CV most of the time.

Robot reading

Someone somewhere might think that people do not mind listening to books read by a robot. That person is totally wrong.

Ego driven story poorly told

Honestly surprising that this was a leadership story from the 2020s and not the 1920s. Filled with lots of outdated and frankly sexist references to war and sports and "that lady down the hall" and so forth.

And if only to makes things worse I found the narration very jarring. Very strange word stress and pauses in sentences, which for me made an already poor story harder to get through.

Thankfully it's a short tale. One of the few positives, along with a few takeaways that you'd most likely already know anyway.
