Technology, Entrepreneurs,
and Silicon Valley

The impact of technology throughout history is reviewed and analyzed for the non-technical audience. Comparisons are made between windmills, electricity, computers, steel, the printing press and television. A brief history of technology in Silicon Valley guides the readers through the boom and bust. Quotes from Hewlett, Packard, Jobs and others are interspersed through the colorful photographs.

Note:  Steve Jobs personally wrote the Apple profile in 2001 for this book.
