Valley of Genius" tells the story of the birth, growth, and coming of age of Silicon Valley in the Bay Area of California. It is the story from Atari and PARC Xerox to Twitter and Facebook and it is told by the players themselves. This makes for very interesting reading and I was fascinated by it. This is a story of intense creativity and hard work. Along the way some of the participants made hitherto unheard of amounts of money. The story tells of rewards that come from risks, and booms and busts. A must read regardless of whether you are a Silicon Valley resident or just someone who is interested in technology and the internet.
