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 The New New Thing—is an ingeniously conceived history of the Internet revolution.
Michael Lewis is the best-selling author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, The Blind Side, The Big Short, and The Undoing Project. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife and three children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outrageous Read an outrageous view into silicon valley and all the excess that went along with the "new economy." This was written to capture the height of the 2000 .com tech boom. An accurate and intriguing assessment of this time.

Editorial Reviews

The most significant business story since the days of Henry Ford. . . . Lewis achieves a novelistic elegance. — Boston GlobeRemarkable. . . . 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. — Fred Moody (Wall Street Journal)A splendid, entirely satisfying book, intelligent and fun and revealing and troubling in the correct proportions, resolutely skeptical but not at all cynical. — Kurt Andersen (New York Times Book Review)
