Review by: Randall Wood on Aug. 16, 2012 :
A Slashdotter led me to this book and I'm glad I read it. It's a well told story about life in a start-up during an era of personal computing that's long gone. Will be interesting to nostalgic mid-40 nerds like me, or anyone interested in the trials and tribulations of trying to make a start-up into a corporation, but anyone involved in software development will find something interesting here. The book flows well and the narration is good enough to make the story very readable.
