The following is taken from an interview with Guy Kawasaki (author of "The Macintosh Way") in the business section of the New York Times on May 2, 1993. Question: O.K., it's your turn to analyze the appointment of Louis Gerstner Jr. to the chairmanship of I.B.M. Answer: It makes perfect sense: Take the C.E.O. from a company [RJR Nabisco] whose mission is to get people addicted to something that might kill then and put him in charge of I.B.M. I can see the thinking behind his appointment.
