Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Desiree Solso
With its little red return envelopes and online streaming, Netflix, and its founder Reed Hastings, quickly rose to the top of the business world. In 2010 Fortune magazine listed Reed Hastings as Business Person of the Year. Part of the "Technology Pioneers" series, the book gives a clear and concise history of not only Netflix, but also of the history of movies and television in the home. Some might remember the conflict over rising prices and changes in services in recent years. Examples from customer feedback, responses from the founder, and detailed facts provide precise account of the conflicts Netflix experienced. Throughout the book, there are small blocks of information on the side to give a brief overview of the section. A glossary and timeline is included in the back of the book for added information. Color photos throughout the chapters are a great addition to the book. This book would be useful in the classroom for students researching the current changes in technology. Reviewer: Desiree Solso
