This is a great summary of how Jim Clark progressed in his life to start and grow 4 billion dollar companies including Silicon Graphics, Netscape, Healtheon (now WebMD), and myCFO. The stories in this book are unusual and amazing. Some of the key topics covered include how Jim Clark found and recruited some of the best people (many computer people from the school IIR in India). You will learn how he created and gathered a constant stream of new ideas, many of them not useful and a few great ones. You will learn how he (and many other founders of companies) got pushed out of his own company by venture capital investors. If you are growing a company or getting investment for your business, this book is likely to help you.

This is the best factual book I have read for such a long time! It was so gripping that I found myself checking the facts on the net just to convince myself that these people exist. Top rate tale telling.
