Geek Silicon Valley: The Inside Guide to Palo Alto, Stanford, Menlo Park, Mountain View, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, San Jose, San Francisco
It’s Saturday! Today’s book recommendation is…
Let’s face it, with the millions of people who are planning to visit, move, buy Real Estate in the Bay Area in the next few months/years, guides will be needed.
Here’s a local’s review:
I’ve lived in Palo ALto for years and still learned a ton from this book. It’s the perfect blend of history, context, entertaining anecdotes and insight. Vance manages to describe many “geek” innovations in layman terms, so that the book was especially helpful for a non-geek like me–someone who knew it was past time to learn about his hometown as well as the most important revolution of the 20th century. Who would have thought something so good for me would have caused me to laugh out loud at several points? Just wait until you read about Google’s party plane.
The real question is: when will this be available in Russian and Chinese? Can you say market opportunity? You owe me if you become a millionaire with this idea!
