"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
