This author actually gets inside the venture shop and tells you what each member of the team is thinking, what motivates them, how they view their entrepreneur investees.
This is a great book about a unique time in history and a few high achievers who mostly came from blue-collar backgrounds who were in thick of it, making surprisingly seat-of-the-pants decisions.
What is interesting is many of the companies that made it through the bubble collapse are still around and even profitable, and have changed our lives. While most of us still go to the store to get grocieries, how we research purchases, buy books, music and many other items has changed.
It's worth adding that Eric Conger does a great job of narrating a very good book and bringing the entertaining dialog to life.
If this is at all an interesting subject to you, I recomend this book.
I enjoyed this book and found it to hold my interest as well as provide information. The reader, the writer and the topic were all superb!
I really enjoyed this book. I thought it might seem outdated since it was set and written during and only very shortly afer the internet bubble of the 90's, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story of each of the companies the eBoys invested in was interesting and the way the author puts you directly in the conversation is great. The only disappointment for me was an excessive fidelity to reproducing their use of profanity. There were probably 30 or 40 uses of the "f-word" throughout the book.
