Day 1: page 89 This book talks on a brief history of the computer, and the lawsuit between Microsoft and the government, with the almost-monopoly of Microsoft being sued for, well, being a market hog, and the stealing of business from Netscape when Microsoft introduced the free, better, Internet explorer.

Fantastic Book about Microsoft, it's competitors and the governments Anti-trust case in the late 90's, a case that changed Microsoft and the computer industry completely. David Boies is the hero of the book, building the case piece by piece and weaving a plot that showed Microsoft as a bully forcing competitors out of business.

I listened to the audiobook and it's probably better that way due to the heavy legal terms. I really enjoyed this book and felt that it had a lot of insight about how Microsoft operated and how the legal teams chose to argue the case.

This book was quite interesting but heavy going because of the amount of legal details included. Gives insight into the mindset of the top leaders of the company.

If you are into computer history(think soul of a new machine, hackers, etc) it's very good. If you dont know what those 2 books are dont bother reading it.
