The House of Making Things
Semiconductor expert Peiter Morgan offers a fresh take on global industry and its future. More
Blending nuanced cultural and geopolitical insight with an immersive narrative format, The House of Making Things tells a perspective-shifting story set against the East–West race for dominance in industry and innovation.
John Smith faces the challenge of his career. Relocated from the United States to an Asian metropolis, he must helm one-half of TeraSil Enterprises, an integrated-circuit manufacturer consisting of ten football fields’ worth of equipment and thousands of skilled employees. Further adding to the difficulty, John and his team, as well as other players in TeraSil’s vast orbit, must cooperate—and compete with—their Eastern counterparts, which brings each side’s differing approaches into sharp relief.
Author Peiter Morgan draws upon decades of personal experience to tell the story of TeraSil’s quest for breakthrough performance—and in the process, he shatters our narrowing Western perspective and delivers a broader understanding of the forces driving modern industry, science, and culture.
