9781450556569: A Terrace On The Tower Of Babel

Do you want to know what really happened in the tech bubble? How the real-estate boom started? How the World really works? Can you handle the unvarnished, completely politically-incorrect truth? Don't assume anything. Come out on a TERRACE for a view you never imagined:

It's the end of the century. Technological invention has become a firestorm driving and driven by an economic boom such as the world has never seen. At the core of the inferno, are the people whose lives are inextricably linked to the Silicon Valley and San Francisco. People from the angry Asian-Hispanic beauty Angelina Sumana Ruiz, to the proud, WASP, mega-lawyer Preston Elliott Hughes, Jr.; from Rasheyd, the Saudi Arabian businessman, to the generation Y, internet porn king Marcus Caughman; from the lowly Mexican cleaning woman, Maria, to the giant of the global construction industry and last leader of a powerful family dynasty, Samuel McAndrews; and more . . . they frantically fan the flames and extract what they can from the ensuing whirlwind. Environmentalists, gangbangers, accountants, clerics, activists, bureaucrats, socialites, and others join them all in a swirling, chaotic, fin de siècle, ka boom! When the dust settles, the result is there for any eye who wishes to behold. Together they have built the next layer of mankind's progress: A TERRACE ON THE TOWER OF BABEL.

Set in the San Francisco Bay Area, with related scenes in New York, London, Washington D.C., Riyadh, and Ibiza, A TERRACE ON THE TOWER OF BABEL is a fast-moving, fascinating and boldly rollicking tale of epic proportions full of romance, intrigue, philosophy, history, science, humor, thrills, triumph and defeat. It is stark in its reality - frightening at times, comforting at others, rife with controversy yet mortared with sympathetic accord. Delve deep into its provocative and compelling depths or float along at the surface and enjoy it in either case - this is a story you'll never forget!
