The subtitle is How the boys of Silicon Valley make their millions, battle foreign competition, and still can't get a date , which gives a feeling for the wry insider reporting style and the free-wheeling style of the computer industry at birth and as a toddler. No references, but Cringely does make some predictions for the future based on his own informed experience. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
