High-Tech Planet free pdf What do you do when the dream job you have just landed with one of the largest IT multinationals slowly turns into a nightmare? When you find yourself in a spiraling vortex of lies, office politics, incompetence and corruption. With a dysfunctional company where bullying managers, back-stabbing and sex as a career-advancing tool are rife. And all of this in the midst of a high-profile acquisition touted as "game changing" but which in reality hides more sinister aims. Do you leave right away? Do you try and fix it? Do you play the ostrich and ignore it? These are some of the issues faced by Ed Priestley as he relocates to Paris to work for Delphi Tech, the "Ferrari of IT firms," and embarks on a series of international adventures that will change his life forever. FROM FIRST REVIEWS: "Ahmed Limam, a former Oracle executive, has an absorbing story to tell. There have been many novels set in the worlds of advertising, fashion and business- this is the first one set in the world of IT. Mr. Limam's achievement has been to take something that could be dry and boring - IT - and make it compelling and fascinating. Writing in a somewhat rococo style, Ahmed Limam is very good when he explores the daily anxiety of the business world and in the process demystifies IT. And he takes no prisoners. This is a valid, fictionalized commentary on our lives and times- perhaps when historians of the future come to dig up the distant 21st century, a book like "High-Tech Planet" will be a small signpost on the way- some of our story, of how we thought and acted, in the first decades of the IT revolution. Mr. Limam's book is possibly a creation of more consequence than it first appears." - Patrick Plunket, Editor, Athena Press.
