"A splendid, entirely satisfying book, intelligent and fun and revealing and troubling in the correct proportions, resolutely skeptical but not at all cynical. --Kurt Andersen
The most significant business story since the days of Henry Ford. . . . Lewis achieves a novelistic elegance. "
Remarkable. . . . Clark proves to be a character as enthralling as any in American fiction or non-fiction. . . . [A] great story . . . with prose that ranges from the beautiful to the witty to the breathtaking. --Fred Moody"

One reviewer felt that Jim Clark was deified and no negative information was given but I disagree with that assessment. I saw Clark as a man with above average talent who learned to game the system to become super rich. It is sad to see someone with lots of money...all he will ever need for several lifetimes...who can't be content because he "needs" to have a larger number.
1. Michael Lewis is an excellent writer. You will discover numerous insights, much like in Moneyball (which is an outstanding book).
2. To learn about Jim Clark. What makes an wildly economically successful man like him tick? Why the ambition, restlessness, and discontent when he had accomplished so much and been so blessed with great intelligence, health, and wealth? New New Thing gives insights into the wondrous mind of Jim Clark.
3. It provides an insider's view of how businesses start up and are financed in the Silicon Valley.
What the book is not is a how-to book. Nor is it a vividly personal introspection of Jim Clark, who seems aloof, cold and impersonal during the few years chronicled in Lewis' book.
