Publisher's Summary

What's been written on the personalities that have emerged from Silicon Valley tends to be shallow, concentrating narrowly on overnight rags-to-riches sensations. This well-received collection of tales by one of the Valley's best journalists, however, gives us a different perspective - that of the technology Mecca's everyman, from dreamers on the brink of success to some of the more obscure colorful characters in the landscape. Po Bronson is the author of two novels, Bombardiers and The First $20 Million Is Always the Hardest, a seething parody about getting rich in the Info Age. Bronson is also a feature writer for Wired and has written about high-tech culture for The New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes A.S.A.P.. In this Audible exclusive recording, the author himself lends his voice to The Nudist on the Late Shift.

What the Critics Say

"... a book about a dream valley that kept me glued to my seat ...while also leaving me with a deeper sense of the human energy and hubris that fuels America's new entrepreneurial capital, Silicon Valley." (Ken Auletta)

    "pretty good!"

    ok, not a life changer, but there are some real interesting stories here. i listened to it while i was studying a course that covered the history of computing, silicon valley, etc., so this was a real good alternative view of what goes on behind the scenes. well worth a look if you're interested in the topic.
