Editorial Reviews


This new history of a hundred years in California's Silicon Valley development charts not natural history and change; but the transition of business environments and companies within the Valley. The focus on the Valley's technological revolution and its focus on the institutions and personalities which helped shaped the Valley make for an unusual, engrossing coverage. -- Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a great read, filled with wonderful information. It made me think of the compter age in a historical perspective giving me more insight into both the importance of Silicon Valley and the computer as well as the age of the internet. I highly recommend this book.
