There Must Be a Pony in Here Somewhere | [Kara Swisher, Lisa Dickey]

There Must Be a Pony in Here Somewhere

In her acclaimed AOL.com, Kara Swisher chronicled the unlikely ascent of a group of underdog entrepreneurs and their influence on American net culture. This book picks up where the previous one left off, investigating AOL's merger with Time Warner and its aftermath. Journalists Swisher and Dickey have an ear for the comic and an appreciation for the larger-than-life personalities that propel the drama. After the merger, a troubled journey lies ahead both for AOL Time Warner and for its competitors.

Publisher's Summary

In her acclaimed AOL.com, Kara Swisher chronicled the unlikely ascent of a group of underdog entrepreneurs and their influence on American net culture. This book picks up where the previous one left off, investigating AOL's merger with Time Warner and its aftermath. Journalists Swisher and Dickey have an ear for the comic and an appreciation for the larger-than-life personalities that propel the drama. After the merger, a troubled journey lies ahead both for AOL Time Warner and for its competitors. Microsoft, Yahoo, Disney, and AT&T all circle for position, hoping for the worst. But like the little boy who searches through a pile of horse manure looking for the pony, the companies are vigorously scooping their way forward, often without a clue.

    "Author interjected herself too much into the book"

    The author was more interested in writing about herself than in telling the story of the AOL/TimeWarner merger. I felt like I was listening to a sorority girl/teaching assistant in the creative writing class at some university.

    "Sonds like a NY Post editorial"

    The authors have a very "know it all" attitude, mixing facts with personal oppinons.
