Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An outsider's insider view Jim Clark is one of those people whose life creates a very interesting story. However, there are several times during the book (e.g., not knowing about Grace Hopper and his descriptions of programmer types) that it becomes clear that Michael Lewis is still an outsider trying to present an insider view. Overall though, this was a very easy book to read and still provides some insight into the life of a "typical" Silicon Valley billionaire.
