Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Dot.bomb captures our recent collective innocence so effortlessly, it's almost impossible to read through more than a few pages without feeling one's ears burn red with shame at the fools we were." Joey Anuff, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"This is a wild ride of a book, hilarious and horrific and always, always painfully honest. A cautionary tale of cyber-insanity, a Pilgrim's Progress for the Information Age." Joe Klein, author of Primary Colors

Review:

"An entertaining chronicle of the waste, on-the-hoof planning, and early warning signs....Mr. Kuo captures the euphoria of ordinary employees and seasoned managers giddy with paper-riches." Peter Thal Larsen, Financial Times

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Liar's Poker and Barbarians at the Gate, dot.bomb is a gripping insider's account of e-business gone berserk — the unforgettable story of the rise and crash of a major Internet startup.

Synopsis:

J. David Kuo had a ringside seat at one of the biggest busts of the Internet age. Value America (NASDAQ:VUSA) was supposed to revolutionize retailing by using the Internet — no more retailers or distributors needed. Fred Smith, legendary founder of Federal Express, called it the best business model he'd ever seen and invested millions of dollars. In a few short years, the company raised and spent hundreds of millions of dollars before a spectacular crash.
