"How to Castrate a Bull is two memoirs: one of Dave Hitz and another of the company he created. It tells of how Hitz founded and helped to grow one of the world's greatest technology companies, playing a key role in shaping the strategy and culture of NetApp through its early growth, the technology bubble, and into the new millennium. His story illustrates how a brilliant founder can stay with a company—playing a crucial role in keeping entrepreneurship alive even as the firm becomes huge and successful. This book tells the human side of that story, made all the more real by the memoir it records of this remarkable person. A must-read for those who delight in seeing genius in action."
