Brilliant - A Totally Refreshing Look at Technology
You have to read this book! Brenda Laurel is an astute visionary. This little gem - it's only 100 pages long - is a personal history of her life in the Virtual Reality, Gaming side of technology and her brush with the Titans of Silicon Valley who pulled the plug on her company, Purple Moon, just when it was starting to make money. She explains with humor and insight all the mistakes she made along the way and her vision for a better technological tomorrow. Her description of life as the CEO of a Girls video game company, the research and findings her company made about why and how Video games for girls should be different than those for boys are streaked with humor and insight. She describes her dislike for Barbie - it's not what you think! And her vision and hopes for the future now that she is no longer a CEO. She is amazing and I would highly recommend her book for entrepreneurs and wannabes who believe they can change the male-oriented technical world as we know it.Was this review helpful?
