"This book is a small delight! I can highly recommend Artifacts as a light, yet fascinating, read." Michael R. Williams Isis

"Silicon Valley as you never knew it. A fascinating dissection of the community that went from orchards to Apples in one generation and changed the world."—James Burke, author ofCircles: Fifty Round-Trips Through History, Technology, Science, and Culture

This book has little or nothing to do with Archaeology and certainly deleted the majority of Silicon Valley high tech computer companies. The most important Silicon Valley cities, computer icons and businesses are not mentioned. Small towns are included, yet are unrelated to Artifacts and what it is suppose to be! This author seems to be interested in a holiday and having a jolly fun time, and perhaps, writing some pertinent information. This book does not reflect Silicon Valley and certainly has zero archaeology in it. And, by the way, are those broken computer chips on the cover? Hard to tell even from the cover what this book is about, and the title is inappropriate. If you can follow the writing style of inconsistency, and no flow at all, perhaps you will not need an aspirin. But the amount of jumping around in this book, you are on an endless merry-go-round with no chance of getting off. Totally disappointing after an author's paid year here in the Silicon Valley. Next time, have a tour guide from a real Silicon Valley Icon to gather your book information!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
