In the early '90s Michael Wolff relaunched himself as an Internet entrepreneur eager to make a killing at the sharp end of the world's newest business opportunity. But the Internet mavens were building their houses of straw, their share prices based on hype and revenues predicted on control of a medium that no one has yet worked out a way to exploit commercially. This is the story of the hunt for the suckers with a starry future in their eyes, be they venture capitalists, stock market investors or the executives of the mighty Microsoft. Incredibly informative and as readable as a novel this book does for the Internet what YOU'LL NEVER EAT LUNCH IN THIS TOWN AGAIN did for Hollywood.
A story about life as an Internet worker. Well written and funny.
