For Chip Heads Only,
This review is from: Inside Intel: Andy Grove and the Rise of the World's Most Powerful Chip Company (Paperback)This is an insightful book about the beginnings of the chip industry, and Intel's rise to dominate it. Jackson seems fair in his asessments about the company and its personalities, maybe a little too fair. I had expected a bit more muckraking. That Andy Grove is a workaholic slavedriver is no great revelation.
Its a good book for people like me, who love hearing how the Z80 chip came about, but theres nothing much here for general readers. Unless you love technology and the computer business, you'd be advised to skip this one.
If you are a tech-lover, this is a solid, but unspectacular effort.
