Praise from on high
Just received my copy of the British edition of BlackBerry: The Inside Story of Research in Motion. Published last month by Aurum Press, it is a handsome product with a cover slightly altered from the version available in Canada and the United States. Aurum used a photo of a different model of the BlackBerry and made some of the words “pop” nicely on the front cover and the spine. On the outside back cover, they replaced the photo of the co-CEOs, Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, with a generic shot of a young person lying on the ground with backpack and a BlackBerry. Here’s the link to take a look and buy the book from Amazon.co.uk.
Publication in Britain was given a boost by a praising review in the Financial Times of London, which I have long regarded as the best English-language newspaper in the world. What author wouldn’t like his style referred to as “jaunty.” Here’s the link to the review.
