The story itself is extremely witty, and deserves its status as a classic fully.

The reader brought the story to life. Every character had a different voice and accent, bringing the characters to life. This was the first time that an audiobook was actually better than reading the book myself.

Extremely interesting history of the digital innovation. A nice change from the almost cult status some individuals have in Silicone Valley, this book describes the unsung heroes without which the Gates' and Jobs' of the world would not be possible.

Excellent presentation and story. I hope this is turned into a full length book, because the only negative thing I can say is that I am left wanting so much more.
