The lure of this book is the insight into the computer industry. Author Daniel Oran has an insider's view into the workings of Microsoft, as he was the program manager who invented the Start button and Taskbar for Windows 95. Reading this book, one can't help but substitute Microsoft for Megasoft and Bill Gates for Jack Malcom, relishing the details of how life operates behind the scenes at the software giant. This novel offers some frightening possibilities as Oran exposes how your ordinary PC could turn into Big Brother.
Despite some uneven moments, the technological aspects and potential for mishap and crime in Oran's novel are sure to foster a budding genre of computer thrillers. Anyone with access to a computer will enjoy the view Oran provides into the dealings of the tech industry; the plot will have you looking at your own computer with a suddenly suspicious eye. --Jenny Brown --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
