Facebook, YouTube and myspace. Unheard of a few years ago, these are all now household names. All three were started with little more than an idea, passion and effort. Yet all three are now used by tens of millions of people, and have made their founders worth billions. This book explains who made this happen, and how.

Sarah Lacy has reported on start-ups and venture capital for Business Week in Silicon Valley for nearly a decade and was one of the only journalists who stayed around after the dotcom crash.Review:
Intimate, behind the scenes glimpses into Silicon Valley --Mark Horowitz, WIRED Lacy obviously spent a great deal of time with these celebrated entrepreneurs. Her descriptions of their business meetings come complete with snatches of you-are-there dialogue, a la Bob Woodward. --Katie Hafner - New York Times Book Review With the collapse of the Internet Bubble, the mainstream media wrote off Silicon Valley and the dot.com world as dead stories - and thus missed the birth of an even bigger and more far-reaching Web phenomenon: on-line communities and social networks, the so-called Web 2.0. Happily, one intrepid reporter, Sarah Lacy, stayed on - and she now has given us what will likely be the only real record of what happened during that remarkable era. Her portrayals of the founders of companies such as Facebook and Twitter are dead-on, and her reporting will no doubt be a vital source on this amazing time for generations to come. --Michael S. Malone, author of Bill & Dave: How Hewlett and Packard Built the World's Greatest Company
