Customer Review

on 30 December 2013
Actually, I would echo everything said by the (as I write this) only other 2-star reviewer, J. Mcgregor "jiy126". I was expecting a history of the "dotcom" madness of the late 1990s/early 2000s. There is some of that and - to be fair - it is generally interesting and well-written. However, the great bulk of the book is a potted history of Josh Harris and his company called Psuedo (neither of which I had ever heard of, despite the fact that I would regard myself as being fairly plugged into this kind of thing). There is a degree of hero-worship that is very grating (and completely unwarranted, to my mind: Josh Harris' ideas and activities seem to be nothing other than utter clap-trap). I found this book very tedious, hard work and I regard the time I invested in reading it as time wasted. As my fellow 2-star reviewer suggested, do a bit of prior research about Psuedo, Josh Harris and Harris' activities and if (for some reason) you find them interesting then by all means buy the book: it is fairly well written if you don't regard the subject-matter as completely banal.
