From Our Editors
With an unparalleled contemporary candour, Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker, has again immersed readers into a microculture to tell a story that could only happen in the age of technology. The New New Thing: A Silicon Valley Story tells the story of Jim Clark, the symbolic spirit of the digital entrepreneurs. His company Healtheon has been freshly launched after successful stints with Silicon Graphics and then Netscape. From here, Lewis takes us into the boardrooms and server spaces that keep business moving at a prophetically frenetic pace, laying out a landscape of geeks and billionaires that is the new economy.
