Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In "the best book to date on the subject" (San Francisco Chronicle), prize-winning journalist David A. Kaplan brings to life the culture and history of Silicon Valley. The symbol of high-tech genius and ineffable wealth, a place that competes with Hollywood and Washington in the zeitgeist of success and excess, the Valley is the epicenter of the New Economy. Depending on yesterday's stock market close, roughly a quartermillion Siliconillionaires live in the Valley. And they're building megalo-mansions and buying Lamborghinis as fast as they can. Combining reportorial insight and biting wit, The Silicon Boys tells the unforgettable story of dreams and greed, ambition and luck, that has become the Valley of the Dollars.

Synopsis:

An award-winning "Newsweek" culture writer takes readers on a daring and rollicking romp through the Silicon Valley saga to tell why it happened there, why it matters, and what comes next. "A wonderful ride, filled with landmarks, history, and histrionics, and the voice of an intelligent, witty guide."--"New York Times."

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 339-342) and index.
