  • "In Losing the Signal, Jacquie McNish and Sean Silcoff tell the harrowing and riveting story of how we lost the connection to the BlackBerry, a communication device so innovative and addictive that it was known, among aficionados, as a CrackBerry. It's a tale of rivalries, jealousies, and missed opportunities. You won't be able to put it down."

  • "In the tech industry, they say that you learn more from a failure than from a hit. Well, if that's true, Losing the Signal will give you a postdoctoral education. Reading the inside story of the BlackBerry's helpless flameout is like watching any other train wreck: You're horrified, but you can't look away."

  • "Losing the Signal tells of the marriage and divorce of Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, how two opposites built RIM into a world-beater and how they lost it. This is first-class reporting that reads like a juicy novel, with one amazing story after another. A terrific book."
