In the weird glow of the dying millennium, Michael Lewis sets out on a safari through Silicon Valley to find the world's most important technology entrepreneur, the man who embodies the spirit of the coming age. He finds him in Jim Clark, who is about to create his third, separate, billion-dollar company: first Silicon Graphics, then Netscape--which launched the Information Age--and now Healtheon, a startup that may turn the $1 trillion healthcare industry on its head. Despite the variety of his achievements, Clark thinks of himself mainly as the creator of Hyperion, which happens to be a sailboat--not just an ordinary yacht, but the world's largest single-mast vessel, a machine more complex than a 747. Clark claims he will be able to sail it via computer from his desk in San Francisco, and the new code may contain the seeds of his next billion-dollar coup. On the wings of Lewis' celebrated storytelling, the listener takes the ride of a lifetime through this strange landscape of geeks and billionaires. We get the inside story of the battle between Netscape and Microsoft; we sit in the room as Clark tries to persuade the investment bankers that Healtheon IS the new Microsoft; we get queasy as Clark pits his boat against the rage of the North Atlantic in winter. And in every brilliant anecdote and character sketch, Lewis is drawing us a map of markets and free enterprise in the twenty-first century.… (mere)

Pretty fascinating story about the founder of Netscape and at least according to this telling, the man who rocked Silicon Valley to it's current prominence. Flipping the roll of the engineer to to top. ( )

Really enjoyed this book. Read it during quarantine and loved the entrepreneurial aspect of it. Cool to see how the tech world worked when it was up and coming. ( )

This is a story about Jim Clark -- he started multiple important Silicon Valley companies (SGI, Netscape, myCFO, and Healtheon), did some important research in computer graphics, and built one of the world's largest megayachts. However, his biggest and most lasting impact was breaking the Microsoft stranglehold on the entire technology/startup ecosystem by involving the DOJ when Microsoft tried to shake down Netscape.

Overall, this book does a great job of describing the late-1990s Silicon Valley (it was published in 1999, well before the collapse), as well as Jim Clark's own unique style and personality. It's one of the most authentic and accurate accounts of the period I've read. ( )

- Reads like a Silicon Valley script sometimes.
- Michael Lewis is one of the best non-fiction writers I've ever read.
- Much of what makes SV SV comes from this guy. ( )

Este libro ha envejecido, no demasiado pero da la sensación al leerlo de estar leyendo un libro de historia, todo lo contrario que con El póker del mentiroso, que sigue hoy tan vigente como entonces.
Me encanta el olfato que tiene ML para elegir los temas sobre los que escribe. elija lo que elija, hasta ahora, siempre me ha parecido el tema más interesante del mundo.
En esta ocasión asistimos a la creación, ascenso y pinchazo de la burbuja de las puntocom desde primera fila, siguiendo la historia de Jim Clark, un emprendedor en toda regla que se forró secuencialmente con Sillicon Graphics, Netscape y Healtheon. Clark es un individuo curioso, con una ansia interminable por hacer cosas nuevas, que triunfó varias veces debido principalmente a la gran capacidad de convicción que tenía sobre inversores y colaboradores. Un personaje curioso. ML dedica un montón de páginas al Hyperion, el yate de Clark, que funciona en automático guiado por 25 ordenadores. La obsesión de Clark por su yate contribuye a que lo veamos como un bicho raro, efecto totalmente buscado por el autor.
En resumen, el libro es bueno, está muy bien escrito, y el tema es interesante. Recomendable. ( )
