Review:

“A veritable piñata of a book, which when smashed by the reader’s enthusiastic attention, showers upon him everything from the history of useless roulette systems to the latest developments in chaos theory.” —The New York Times
“An astonishing and fascinating tale of scientific heroism.” —Richard Dawkins
 
“Bass has done the best job so far of capturing the marriage of technical imagination and the communal coziness that gave birth to Silicon Valley.” —Los Angeles Times
