Product Description


"Must reading for anyone who wants to understand the driving point for the New Economy. It's especially gratifying to learn the story directly from some of the Valley's key figures."--John Young, retired CEO, Hewlett-Packard "To emulate, one must first understand. This book is an essential guide for communities and individuals worldwide trying to understand and emulate this startling phenomenon known as Silicon Valley. It shows that by harnessing the power of abundant ideas, 'Silicon Valley' has become not just a place but a culture and a state of mind."--Vinod Khosla, General Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers "While a number of books have been written on Silicon Valley, this one is unequaled in combining observation and analysis by both scholars and key practitioners. Fine reading for scholars and sophisticated laypersons alike."--Richard R. Nelson, Columbia University

HASH(0x93384a44) out of 5 stars Excellent guidebook to Silicon Valley 30 Oct. 2001
By Shig Matsushita - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book to describe all thinkable crosssections of Silicon Valley through interviews in the social science methods and through writing by prominent figures in Silicon Valley. The only drawback I found is that the book has too rich contents for a reader to read through casually. I strongly recommend this book to those serious readers who are engaged in Silicon Valley, associated with venture businesses, interested in mechanisms and histories of Silicon Valley, or interested in business models.
The book has a big reference table to illustrate how different Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are from small business owners and traditional entrepreneurs, and describes four distinct types of entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. The book also enumerates ten reasons why Silicon Valley has been prosperous.
This is really a good book for a reader to learn what Silicon Valley is like.

I've read it many times and, every time I read it, it inspires me. It is amazing to know all the stories of successful entrepreneurs and how to manage to pivot their product until they started to grow.
