The Delivery Man: The Art of turning Ideas into Products in Silicon Valley by Sebastien Taveau answers the simple, yet least considered question by the ordinary person or consumer: What does it really take to bring new tech products into the market? In this book, the author documents his unique journey from the moment he comes to the US in 1996 to becoming one of the top technology executives in Silicon Valley. The author defines The Delivery Man, as the person with the hands that create — products and services; they are crowds unknown to the consumer. Readers will understand the crucial position of the Delivery Man in the process of creating and delivering a new product into the market and more.

Sebastien Taveau's book is a must-read for business executives and leaders, and while the author shares his unique experience in Silicon Valley, this book contains insights and lessons that will help any leader create deeper levels of success with their team or organization. The author underlines the importance of creating unity from diversity: “This is not a one-person job, even if you are a great delivery person. You need the help and support of so many roles to get anything out of the door.” He shares his lessons on how to get people — with different skills, strengths, and challenges — to rally behind a project. Readers will learn how to deal with negativity, handle uncertainty, and find the right tools to deliver. This author offers a lot in this captivating, thought-provoking, and how-to book, from his rich experience to the compelling leadership ideas, and he writes in a voice that is irresistible and in prose that is crisp.
