    1. The story of the author’s East coast startup, Vermeer Technologies, which was bought by Microsoft in a deal concluded in January 1996, has been hailed as classic of tech autobiography. It’s a rare insight into the unique blend of intelligence, good timing, cunning and an almost magical ability to squeak through the narrowest of gaps, that characterises successful tech entrepreneurship.Ferguson’s account has the added attraction of being gob-smackingly rude about some of his colleagues and [...]

    3. This book has two parts and each is reviewed.Part 1:The story of the author's starting Vermeer Software and Front Page application.

That's just a dumb fallacy invented by Arts graduates. He seems to be oblivious about the "Smartest Guys in the Room" who drove Enron over a cliff. What's "smart" about ripping off your employees, c [...]

    5. A fairly unfiltered view of the Valley in the late 90's, as well as the VC and startup industry in general. Strongly recommended for those involved in entrepreneurship, as the best parts of the book describe the various challenges involved in running a new tech business (i.e. everything from raising money to dealing with employees to resolving key leadership disputes). The musings on tech as a whole are fairly dated (MSFT was master of the universe then) but the deeper insights and experiences a [...]
