What has made Silicon Valley so productive of new technologies and new firms? How did its pioneering achievements begin-in computer networking, semiconductors, personal computing, and the Internet-and what forces have propelled its unprecedented growth? This collection of nine chapters by contributors from varied disciplines-business, geography, history, regional planning, and sociology-examines the history, development, and entrepreneurial dynamics of Silicon Valley.
This should be mandatory reading for everyone in America. It’s essential to understand how entrepreneurial Silicon Valley is, and how this thought powerhouse has helped transform America and the world.
If I were the California Association of Realtors, I’d sponsor this book, and interleave the pages with ads for houses in the Bay Area. It’s time that the rest of the nation know that this is the place to be if you don’t want to be a mere employee – but an instant millionaire with a house in Palo Alto.
