Just an old Yippee that misses riots in the streets. Nothing worthwhile here.

This book contains lots of libertarian and populist assertions, delivered with very little supporting evidence beyond the occasional anecdote or stray statistic. His observations about Silicon Valley are particularly off the mark and seem driven more by personal animosity towards an industry than any hard facts.
