Publisher's Summary

How do fledgling companies make it from idea to multimillion-dollar Internet IPOs? Steve Harmon, whom CBS MarketWatch calls one of Wall Street's top Internet stock analysts, shows how an innovator can convert sparks of imagination into a money-making Internet business.

Harmon describes the Internet environment as "zero gravity", a place where information, communication, and wealth flow up, down, and sideways as in an astronaut's weightless environment. The result is nanosecond commerce - easy, inexpensive, customized - with a market not bound by locale or time.

In this book, Harmon introduces you to leading entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who describe how they built companies in cyberspace. From finding funding to structuring your financing, he provides myriad valuable resources to help you along the way.

What the Critics Say

"The author's writing is edgy enough to be entertaining and practical enough to deliver insights to the average investor or student of the equities markets." (AudioFile)
"This is about as complete a manual as an entry-level entrepreneur could hope for....[Harmon] offers inspirational stories of the true VC successes and includes interviews with the VCs themselves, letting them say in their own words how they pick the winners, and how you can become one of them." (Amazon.com review)

    "Listing of Statistics"

    I bought this book to listen to it. It's a bit dated, and I knew that before buying it hoping for good content.

    It is a awful audiobook. At least half of the book is the narrator reading charts from the print book. If you want to take in the contents of this book, please for the love of god buy the written book. This book may be ok in its written form, but the audio form isn't worth the time it takes to download it.

    Some of the non-statistic stuff is good, but nothing can make good the reading of charts that this audio book is.

    "Not best suited as an audiobook."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A lot of numbers and statistics very monotone narrator.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Steve Harmon again?

    Maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of Adams Morgan’s performances?

    Maybe


    What character would you cut from Zero Gravity?

    Simplify the data stats


    Any additional comments?

    Warning!
    Do not listen to this while driving you may fall asleep!

    "Half the book is reading out tables"
    What would have made Zero Gravity better?

    I listen to audio books all the time and really enjoy them. However, I couldn't believe this one read out countless tables to me! The introduction was fine but most of the book was made up by the reading out of tables. Surely there is a better way to get the point across? Maybe the author could have explained and commented on their meaning instead.
