Dot.con: The Greatest Story Ever Sold

from the so-that's-what-happened dept

Salon has a review of what they call the first good book about the dot com era. Most of the books that have come out so far have been “insiders” tales that are usually annoying. This one, however, is written by a reporter and is apparently fairly insightful. It’s called Dot.con: The Greatest Story Ever Sold. The reveiwer’s one complaint about it is that it lacks any sense of California – where so much of the dot com business was occurring. From the sound of it, the book seems to blame everyone but the startups themselves for the problems, and that leaves out an awful lot of the story.
