How We Got Here: A Slightly Irreverent History of Technology and Markets
A Silicon Valley and Wall Street Primer
And check out my new book, The End of Medicine: How Silicon Valley (and Naked Mice) Will Reboot Your Doctor, out on July 3.
"This is the book I wish someone had handed me the day I started as an engineering student or the day I started on Wall Street."
Expanding on themes first raised in his tour-de-force, Running Money, Andy Kessler unpacks the entire history of Silicon Valley and Wall Street, from the industrial revolution to computers, communications, money, gold and stock markets. These stories cut [by an unscrupulous editor] from the original manuscript were intended as a Primer on the ways in which new technologies develop from unprofitable curiosities to essential investments.
Indeed, How We Got Here is the book Kessler wishes someone had handed him on his first day as a freshman engineering student at Cornell or on the day he started on Wall Street. In the style of James Burke, it connects the dots through history to how we got to where we are today. Presented with his trademark wit and smart-ass assessments, How We Got Here offers readers an original and refreshing look at history.
