A little dated since it was originally written in 1996, it still provides a good history of the early development of the Internet, and the technologies and personalities involved. Guilder makes several statements that are simply not true and he also makes many predictions, some of which came true, some which didn't. But generally his book was very readable.
"This is indispensable listening for people touched in any way by the communications revolution. Jeff Riggenbach's reading is both intense and understated�." � AudioFile
