Synopsis: The inside story of how a small band of agitators at Microsoft staged the stunning turnaround that transformed the company from an Internet laggard into such a dominant force that it was declared a monopolist.
1993. When Bill Gates peered into Microsoft's crystal ball, he saw a world of Windows. Then the Internet burst onto the scene, and suddenly Gates's Windows-oriented future didn't look so bright. The Internet was the future of computing--and the world's largest software company wasn't ready for it. In How the Web Was Won, veteran Seattle Times journalist Paul Andrews chronicles the explosive drama and high-stakes gamesmanship behind the most remarkable business turnaround of the 1990s: the story of Microsoft's turbulent journey from Windows to the Web--and of the handful of Internet believers who led the charge.
