Technology insider George Gilder delivers a "compelling" (Wired) look under the hood at a genius-fueled startup.
George Gilder has covered the wizards of high tech for twenty-five years and has an insider's knowledge of Silicon Valley and the unpredictable mix of genius, drive, and luck that can turn a startup into a Fortune 500 company. The Silicon Eye is a rollicking narrative of some of the smartest—and most colorful—people on earth and their race to transform an entire industry.
"Like Foveon’s founders, Mr. Gilder wants to understand vision, albeit of a different kind: the vision of innovators. . . . The unpredictable disorder of markets is, in Microsoft parlance, not a bug but a feature. That’s a lesson that Mr. Gilder’s book drives home." — Wall Street Journal
"Proof that the spell of the Valley, after decades of booms and busts, is alive and well." — David Kushner, Washington Post
