The New New Thing: A Silicon Valley Story

by Michael Lewis

WW Norton | January 7, 2014 | Trade Paperback

The New New Thing: A Silicon Valley Story is rated 3.3333 out of 5 by 3.
In the weird glow of the dying millennium, Michael Lewis set out on a safari through Silicon Valley to find the world’s most important technology entrepreneur. He found this in Jim Clark, a man whose achievements include the founding of three separate billion-dollar companies. Lewis also found much more, and the result—the best-selling book —is an ingeniously conceived history of the Internet revolution.

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.

Editorial Reviews

“The most significant business story since the days of Henry Ford. . . . Lewis achieves a novelistic elegance.”

“Remarkable. . . . Clark proves to be a character as enthralling as any in American fiction or non-fiction. . . . [A] great story . . . with prose that ranges from the beautiful to the witty to the breathtaking.”

““A splendid, entirely satisfying book, intelligent and fun and revealing and troubling in the correct proportions, resolutely skeptical but not at all cynical.”
