5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, A must read, 19 April 2000
This review is from: Accidental Empires: How the Boys of Silicon Valley Make Their Millions, Battle Foreign Competition and Still Can't Get a Date (Paperback)
This book provides a detailed yet light hearted approach toward computing history. The authors style of writing is compelling and I found it at times very to put the book down.
As well as being a good read to learn about computing history, this book is also amusing in the way it ridicules most of the major people in computing. For once the sole object of hatred is not just directed at a certain software company chairman, although he does not get away scot free.
Out of all the chapters in the book the seventh, about big blue has to be the most amusing. While the last chapter somewhat strays into obscurity it must be remembered that this book was updated 4 years ago in which time a lot has happened in computing.
I recommend this as a must read to anyone interested in the computing industry.
