Eccentric Orbits by John Bloom

If you like biographies of leaders in technology (Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, etc.), then you’ll find this book fascinating. It is the story of the iridium network of global communication satellites. This was first conceived by a small group of engineers at motorolla. And it would have succeeded if motorola had not screwed up the business side of the operation so poorly. Eccentric Orbits covers the rise, fall and resurrection of this network and company by one man, Dan Colussy. The book also details the rise and fall of Motorola, and iconic technology company that now basically exists in name only.
