A Great Primer of High-Tech2016年2月9日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This was a thoroughly researched, finely written chronicle of the high-tech industry in the Santa Clara Valley-"Silicon Valley." It gave a good understanding of the old days with the fruit orchards through the population explosion in San Jose and detailed commentary on the development of Stanford University (and science programs at UC Berkeley.) It weaves the development of Hewlett-Packard, Fairchild Semiconductors, Oracle, Sun Microprocessors, MIcrosoft, IBM, Intel, Apple, Google and Facebook and many others. The author(s) understand the scientific workings of the inventions these firms work with and sees it from the point of view of an investor-could be a good text for an MBA program. One thing I'd like to add. My grandparents moved to Campbell in 1923. Grandpa Martin was a blacksmith who invented farm machinery and personally built each unit by hand. His most famous invention was, "The Martin Ridger," which was pulled by horse or tractor and made irrigation ditches in the soil where fruit trees grew. Like Mr. Rao points out about the work force in Silicon Valley including many immigrants and transplants, my grandparents were immigrants from New 'Zealand and never naturalized.
Best overall history of Silicon Valley2017年8月24日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This is an outstanding summary of the extensive history of Silicon Valley. Highly recommended for those wanting to look in depth to how Silicon Valley operates, how it stated and what drove its growth. It gives the best answer yet as to why Silicon Valley is located where it is and why it probably would not have been anywhere as successful in another location.

This was an interesting book, a lot of misspellings and grammatical errors. There was one thing that they got glaringly wrong and that was that Shockley had founded Fairchild Semiconductor. Any geek historian will tell you this is wrong. The book also jumps around a lot.
