Computer manufacturing is-after cars, energy production, and illegal drugs-the largest industry in the world and its one of the last great success stories in American business. Cringely presents the history of that industry, focusing as much on the astoundingly odd personalities at its core and the hacker culture they spawned as it does on the remarkable technology they created. Accidental Empires documents the uniquely American saga of creativity ad ego that is at once uproarious, shocking, and inspiring.

"A fascinating book . . . well worth the time." (Sacramento Bee)
