Synopsis: Praise for Overdrive

Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace

"James Wallace offers many tales of . . . temper tantrums, antitrust tussles with the Justice Department, and general dirty tricks Microsoft has allegedly played on its competitors." -The New York Times Book Review

Praise for James Wallace's

Hard Drive: Bill Gates and the Making of the Microsoft Empire

"A stupendous success story. This is the most informative book yet on Bill Gates and Microsoft." -the Washington Post

"Remarkable . . . This book will make you wonder why you didn't buy Microsoft stock when it went public." -The Wall Street Journal

"An engaging, almost classic tale of a boy who finds power in gadgets and then won't let go." -Los Angeles Times

Review: While Microsoft was occupied with the largest, most expensive consumer marketing effort in history, the launch of Windows 95, Netscape was equally busy capturing the Web browser market. By mid-1995 it looked as if Bill Gates and company had missed the paradigm shift created by the Internet, and many pundits doubted Microsoft could recover. Meanwhile, the Justice Department was aggressively investigating claims of unfair practices levied by Microsoft's competitors. Suddenly the company found itself in the unfamiliar role of lumbering corporate giant--and underdog. James Wallace's Overdrive, his sequel to Hard Drive, is the story of Microsoft's response to this challenge. A veteran investigative reporter, the author paints a vivid portrait of Gates's determination and competitive ferocity, with a host of revealing anecdotes and details as backdrop. The battle for control of cyberspace is far from over, but Microsoft is clearly not to be trifled with. The tale of how the company repositioned itself in the race makes for fascinating reading.
